What an awesome drawing. Did you do that, Robyn?

Eek! I'd forgotten!
Thanks for the reminder, Robyn; Peanuts isn't syndicated in the Guardian so I've not had Schröder marching up and down with placards counting down the days.

The "Pastoral" is blaring through the house at the moment. I'll put the 9th on later and do the obligatory karaoke "Ode to Joy".
Happy birthday, Ludwig.

I did not draw this, althought it would be nice to have that talent.

The 9th is a pounding wonder. When we performed this last year I was seated as 4th horn, so it fell to me to play the extended solo in the adagio (3 movement), and it was the highlight of my short career. I'm sure I have mentioned this here before and will mention it again.

A fifth for Beethoven's birthday. I feel the disco vibe now.

That is a great picture. I'm with Kim.
