The Beethoven Project / Le projet Beethoven





English text – le texte français suit
Starting this week, ITYWLTMT in all of its platforms (Tuesday and Friday Blogs, Podcasts, YouTube Channel) will embark into a many month-long project to feature all of the Beethoven symphonies and concerti, as well asother significant works.
On a monthly basis, we will feature works by Beethoven - the end-state of the rpoject should be:
1 – we will have programmed all of the symphonies and concerti (either individual movements or in full) in our montages;
2 – we will have complete versions of the symphonies and some of the concerti and other major works on our YouTube channel
3 – we will provide some articles (starting with tomorrow’s Tuesday blog) that will discuss Beethoven recordings, progres on the project and some “surprises”.
Please bokmark this post, as it will be updated with information and links as they develop.

Texte français
A partir de cette semaine, ITYWLTMT dans toutes ses plateformes (blogues, baladodiffusions et chaîne YouTube) entreprend un projet étalé sur plusieurs mois qui mettra en évidence les symphonies, concerti et autres œuvres majeures de Beethoven.
Chaque mois, nous présenterons ces œuvres – notre objectif sera 
1 – d’avoir présenté toutes les symphonies et concerti (fragments ou intégralement) dans le cadre de nos montages
2 – de programmer toutes les symphonies et certains concerti et autres œuvres majeures sur notre chaîne vidéo
3 – de publier une série d’articles pertinents sur la discographie des œuvres de Beethoven, ou faisant le point sur l’évolution du projet et, qui sait, une ou deux surprises…
Vous êtes donc invités à marquer cette page d’un signet sur votre fureteur, car nous mettrons à jour cette page tout au cours du projet.
