Beethoven Goes To Hollywood

Ludwig's Adventures in Tinseltown Giveaway

Friday, November 02, 2012

It's easy to imagine that, had he been alive in contemporary times, Beethoven's greatness might have transcended the musical score and onto the big screen. Taking this fantasy a step forward, we are extending our Time Machine feature from last year's Beethoven Awareness Month with a Beethoven Goes To Hollywood giveaway. 

At the end of November we will pick five (5) random winners and each will receive an Obeytoven Poster and a Beethoven Was Def mug!

How This Works

Below you will find 10 photos from famous movies from the last couple of decades that could have included Beethoven as a lead actor. Each of the photos is numbered. In the entry form above the photos, list the titles of each the ten films in the correct order and then enter your name and email address. If you need to check your work, you can find the answers at our Facebook page.

Entry Form

About Beethoven Awareness Month

No composer impacted the course of Western music like Ludwig van Beethoven. The events of his life are the stuff of Romantic legend, his works permeate concert halls and he remains a cultural icon outside of classical music, turning up in movies, TV soundtracks, commercials and pop songs. Throughout November, WQXR celebrates Beethoven's work through concert broadcasts, multimedia projects, marathons and other features.
