Months ago a friend of mine recommended a video on YouTube by ThePianoGuys. I checked it out and was really impressed. I noticed that they were going on tour this year so I bought two tickets for their show at the Keswick Theater, just outside of Philadelphia, PA. The concert was last Friday night and it was fabulous. I laughed, I cried, I was moved. It is inspirational to see artists doing what they love to do. One of the things that touched me most were these words that appeared at the beginning of one of the songs on a video screen in the middle of the stage.
“Don’t only practice your art, But force your way into its secrets, For it and knowledge can Raise men to the divine.” -Ludwig van Beethoven
I’ve been a Beethoven fan since I was in school. The passion and drive in his music oozes out of every melody, every scale, every rhythm. It was a reminder to me, and I hope it is to everyone. You can download today’s picture for free with Beethoven’s quote and use it for inspiration whenever you need it.
