From Sickness to Health: Beethoven's Heiliger Dankgesang
October 30, 2007 presentation by Robert Kapilow for the Stanford School of Medicine Medcast lecture series.
Backed by Stanford University's Ensemble in Residence, the St. Lawrence String Quartet, Robert Kapilow, composer and radio commentator, explores the notion of illness as a potent source of creativity (e.g., appreciation for existence) through Beethoven's "Heiliger Dankgesang," which Beethoven wrote in thanksgiving after recovering from a life-threatening illness.
