La Campanella is the third of Franz Liszt‘s six Grandes Etudes de Paganini, based on Paganini’s 2nd Violin Concerto. A demanding piece to execute, such as is common in Liszt’s work, it studies large hand jumps, often larger than an octave, and is a brisk paced Allegretto.
The video shows a 10 year old blind kid with Down Syndrome, Noboyuki Tsuyii, beautifully working his way through the piece and the subsequent standing ovation by the whole auditorium.

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67, was written by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1804–08. This symphony is one of the most popular and best-known compositions in all of classical music, and one of the most often played symphonies. It comprises four movements: an opening sonata, andante, and a fast scherzo which leads attacca to the finale. First performed in Vienna’s Theater an der Wien in 1808, the work achieved its prodigious reputation soon afterwards. E. T. A. Hoffmann described the symphony as “one of the most important works of the time”.
