Making Lemonade from Beethoven's Lemons

If my piece was a bit sour about most of the selections in the first program prepared for the San Francisco Symphony's Beethoven Project, the good news may perhaps be that many people in the audience were cured of the impression that Beethoven was a "great man" who could do no wrong, meaning that they can spend less time agonizing over Thomas Carlyle and more time just bothering the listen to the music being presented to them!
