Beethoven's Biggest Hit Was the... What?

Join Barney Sherman Monday for an afternoon of classical music, with great pieces from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Featured works include the last symphony of Haydn and an early hit of Beethoven, his Septet. Beethoven wrote this serenade with every intention of its becoming a best-seller, and it did, in some ways out-earning even the symphonies. If you wonder what music-lovers heard in it, wait till you hear the exceptional recording Barney has in store.
