What a great idea, it must be fabulous to go for a walk in your town and come across something like this.

PS. It's in Spain. :o)

Cool idea to bring the music out of the hall into the street. Nice promo for the town. Are you familiar with that town?

No, I know where it is, but never been there.

This is what classical music, and more specifically Beethoven's Ode can do. It crosses generations, is irresistible to attempt to conduct, and makes my fingers just itch for my cello. I love the Ode and to have it reflect such joy in so many people's faces starts my day beautifully.

*Hugs* to you and your loved ones today. Thank you for such a nice Thursday gift.

I must be in 'one of those moods' today because this made me completely burst into tears. It's good to know that there is still beauty and whimsy and great, timeless art in the world. Yay! :)

Oh my, burst into tears. I have those days. lol. Yes, beauty and whimsy and great, timeless art. What would life be without it? And good to focus on it in the face of senseless violence and evil.

What a wonderful way to start a day! Thank you so much for this gift of beauty and joy.

Right now, I'm so jealous of those folks who had a chance to be surprised by some of the best music ever composed. I'm like Erulisse: that made my fingers itch for my violin!! You know, I think that of all of classical music, this is the one piece that is best known and best loved, no matter if you like any of the rest of it or not!

Oh you're quite welcome Aearwen. I always wanted to play the violin, actually I wanted to play Celtic music on the fiddle. Alas, it was not to be.

I love it that they chose the Ode to Joy for this. "Seid umschlungen, Millionen!" (Be embraced, millions!)

An inspiring piece of music, for sure.

A very inspirational piece of music--but I was talking about the text of the poem, to which of course Beethoven's music has leant extraordinary power. A poem about reaching out to mankind, joyfully, is somehow appropriate to a flash mob of this particular kind, don't you think?
