Saturday Morning Cartoons: Schroeder Plays the 'Pathetique' Sonata
Saturday, November 26, 2011
For this final weekend in Beethoven Awareness Month, we return to the Peanuts gang for our Saturday Morning Cartoon.
In the 1969 animated film A Boy Named Charlie Brown, Schroeder (AKA pianist Ingolf Dahl) trades in his toy piano for something much more grand as he plays the second movement from Beethoven’s Sonata No. 8 in C Minor, Op. 13, “Pathetique.”
