In which I encourage you to explore Beethoven’s string quartets

If you like classical music, you probably already know that Friday is Beethoven’s birthday.  And if you know that, you’ll probably enjoy this week’s Exploring Music, which is exploring Beethoven’s string quartets. I’m looking forward to listening to them; there’s some amazing music in there.

This can be a bit problematic. I like to put on some music when I’m writing, but music that’s too interesting becomes a distraction. This is music worth pausing for and allowing yourself to be absorbed. You too can be distracted, but only while the program is playing. To catch it while it’s streaming, the best solution I’ve found is Tunein.
