What Makes It Great? Beethoven

Rob Kapilow takes a well-known piece of music (that you've heard dozens of times, at least), then he slices it, chops it up, turns it inside out, and before you leave one of his acclaimed sessions, you have a completely new take on an old classic. For this installment of What Makes It Great?, Kapilow takes on composing behemoth Beethoven—specifically, his String Quartet, Op. 18, No. 1. Enjoy a live performance of this famous track by the Calidore String Quartet, then watch as Kapilow unravels it note by note. Called “an educator, motivational speaker, and game show host, all rolled up in one,” Kapilow runs the show with interactive commentaries and riveting Q&A discussion. It's everything you didn't realize you wanted to know about classical music.
