Keywords: Beethoven was a giant in musical composition - to this day, one hundred eighty-four years after his death - his music is still widely heard in concerts around the world, played by major orchestras, pianists, chamber groups, etc. When you look at music history of the past 500 years, there are a few distinctive melodies which are almost universally known and loved. Beethoven's theme from his ninth symphony - sometimes entitled "Ode to Joy" - is one of those, and this theme from the first movement of the "Moonlight Sonata" for piano is another. It is a slow, rather dreamy piece which transports a listener to another time and space.
