What you need to know about this programme:
A young boy named Christoph is initially quite upset when the composer Beethoven moves into his late father’s upstairs office. Being completely deaf, Beethoven is neither aware of nor cares about the noise he creates, and Christoph writes his uncle concerned about the “madman” living upstairs. Through correspondence between Christoph and his uncle, we learn about Beethoven as he works on his ninth symphony. Come an hour early to try an instrument and meet musicians at the Instrument Discovery Zoo.
