Video Fridays: Beethoven at the Library of Congress

As our readers will already know, the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth is being celebrated this year. In our fall issue, we surveyed nine noteworthy Beethoven collections/repositories around the world, one of which is the Library of Congress (LOC). For today’s Video Friday, enjoy this new 9-minute video released by the LOC in which the Library's Stephanie Akau speaks about the manuscript sketches for Beethoven's op. 131 string quartet held at the Library of Congress.
