A little bit of German culture

January 10th, 2020

On Christmas Day, my daughter (currently 9½) got a chance to play around at a piano. She’s never had formal lessons, but a friend taught her Au clair de la lune a few years ago, and she picked up more beyond that. At one point, she surprised us with the opening notes of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony: ta-ta-ta-taaa!
“Mom, I can play Beethoven!”
We laughed, then I pointed out, “But you just played the entire Ode to Joy. That’s Beethoven too.”
Her: “I thought that was Mozart.”
I guess her German musical culutre needs still some work.
