Now look below this post, way below to the link of a flash mob performing selected portions of Beethoven's Ode to Joy. He was profoundly deaf when he wrote it.
Some insightful person had the inspiration to take it to the streets of Nuremberg. It begins with the simple genius of a small child daring to play her a recorder before a man with a double-bass viola. It builds to the final crescendo of the great musical genius of Beethoven's 9th symphony. Please, enjoy. It lasts 6 minutes, 23 seconds.
