Beethoven on Guitar
 Earlier this year I visited Siccas Guitars in Karlsruhe, Germany and spent an afternoon recording upon a selection of beautiful guitars. A highlight from these recordings is this video of Beethoven's Adagio Cantabile from his Sonata Pathetique originally composed for the piano.
