Leonid Hambro’s “Happy Birthday, Dear Ludwig”

I first heard this many many years ago sitting in the living room of very dear friends of mine, who first introduced me to fine wines, gourmet cooking, opera, and classical music.  Using recognizable themes of Beethoven’s work, Hambro (who also worked with Victor Borge) has masterfully  created a “Happy Birthday, Dear Ludwig” that is clever, creative, academic (because you need a bit of musical knowledge to get the humor), and very timely since today is Ludwig’s 243rd.
