Article excerpt

THIS ISSUE'S COLLECTION OF BEETHOVENIANA FROM THE WEB world includes three videos that have skyrocketed to fame with millions of hits: a delightful flashmob performance of the Ode to Joy, a three-year-old conducting a recording of the Fifth, and David Beckham's performance of the Ode with a new percussion instrument. We think you will also enjoy a spirited and sensitive performance ofBeethoven s first concerto by eight-yearold Shuan Hern Lee - if only YouTube had existed when Mozart was a child prodigy - and experience what will probably be your first (and perhaps last) exposure to the Seventh Symphony merged with rap. (Live links to the sites can be found on die Center's webpage.)
