A Violinist, a Pianist, and a Composer Walked Into a Bar

And it was awesome. (Why? What were you expecting me to say?)

The violinist is the legendary Yehudi Menuhin; the pianist, the legendary Wilhelm Kempff; the composer, the beyond-legendary Ludwig van Beethoven.

The work(s)? Beethoven’s violin sonatas. The complete violin sonatas. “Complete” meaning “in their entirety.” Their glorious and tuneful comprehensiveness.

All 4.5+ hours worth.

Just…wow. (You’re actually sort of freakin’ me out here, YouTube.)
