A student-friendly introduction to a genius.

The arrival of an eccentric boarder turns a young boy's home upside-down. The classical music composer, Ludwig van Beethoven has moved in upstairs!

Richly set in 19th century Vienna, Beethoven Lives Upstairs is a touching tale of music, friendship and genius. Based in part on historical fact, Beethoven Lives Upstairs features more than twenty-five beautifully performed excerpts of Beethoven's best-loved works.

Based on the award-winning and best-selling Classical Kids compact disc of the same name, Beethoven Lives Upstairs was hailed upon its original release in 1992 as "a video masterpiece" by the Boston Herald and "the best family film to appear in a long timeā€¦" by the Ottawa Citizen. The television special has been seen on HBO, PBS, CBC, the Family Channel and YTV and the home video has sold more than 250,000 copies in North America. In this award-winning story, young Christoph exchanges letters with his uncle, bemoaning the fact that a madman (Beethoven) has moved into the upstairs apartment of their Vienna home. Provides history, drama, music, and fun for kids and young listeners.
