This is a lovely piece of music.
However, it loses a bit of its luster after being played repeatedly on the piano by my daughter. I have encouraged my daughter to practice (as this does not seem to be her natural inclination), so I have no one to blame but myself. I suppose my parents can relate, as my sister and I pounded out countless attempts at piano pieces years ago.
Maybe someday she will be a famous concert pianist, and I will look back on these days (and the fact that Beethoven's Ninth is permanently etched in my brain) fondly.
