The Lyric Feature - Beethoven, A Musical Tour
Twenty four music lovers from Ireland joined Gerry Murphy’s Beethoven Tour earlier this year, visiting locations from Bonn to Vienna, associated with Ludwig van Beethoven the man and his music. Composer, teacher and raconteur Gerry Murphy takes on the challenge of going behind the myths and the legends surrounding Beethoven, to find the human being behind the music, telling the story in his own erudite and witty way.
Producer: Brian McIvor
