Today is not Beethoven’s birthdaymain
Simpe fact: we don’t know when he was born.
All we have is the baptismal record, demonstrating that he was brought to church on December 17, 1770.
He could have been born any time in the first half of December that year, or even in November.
Either way, he does not turn 250 for another full year, so hold back those box sets, will you?
