Photographer's Note

Composer Ludwig van Beethoven was probably born and certainly baptized on December 17, 1770.

We will therefore celebrate him for one long year, finishing with his 250th birthday.

His statue on Mnsterplatz, Bonn, has already been decorated, but this in only a minor part in the activities to come. He shows some disgust as he is still surrounded by the local Christmas market.

PS: I wonder if he and his eternal music will still be honoured in 1750 years, as it is the case for Roman historian Titus Livius who has been honoured by the Italian Republic on the back side of a 2 coin on the occasion on his 2000th anniversary of passing away, in the year 17 A.D.
