A month or so ago, we went to Cincinnati to see The Divine Anne-Sophie Mutter play Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. FINALLY, I post pictures of the doors of the Cincinnati Music Hall where the enchantment took place.
According to the always correct Wikipedia:
Music Hall, commonly known as Cincinnati Music Hall, is a classical music performance hall in Cincinnati, Ohio, completed in 1878. … In January 1975, it was recognized as a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior for its distinctive Venetian Gothic architecture. …
Music Hall was built over a pauper’s cemetery, which has helped fuel its reputation as one of the most haunted places in America.
Nothing haunted us but the wonder of Beethoven’s music and Madame Mutter’s mastery of it and of her instrument.

I could say it’s a representation of Beethoven playing the violin, if Beethoven had been a cat. BUT IT DOESN’T MAKE IT BEETHOVEN.
