Music is math

Did you know that there is a National Mathematics Day in India and is to commemorate the birth anniversary of their famous mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan? He had made remarkable contributions in various fields of mathematics and its branches in England and in India. 

Mathematics, the science of structure, order, and relation that has evolved from the elemental practice of counting, measuring, and describing the shapes of objects. Math deals with logical reasoning and numerical calculation, and its development has involved an increasing degree of idealization and abstraction of its subject matter. Since the 17th century, mathematics has been an indispensable adjunct to the physical sciences and technology, and in more recent times it has assumed a similar role in the quantitative aspects of the life sciences. Today to be a scientist in any area, you need to understand Mathematics.

Music is also Mathematics in a very beautiful form and in that spirit use the links here to enjoy Beethoven's Symphonies No. 5 and No. 6, Choral Fantasy and Piano Concerto No. 4 (featuring the composer as soloist) premiere at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna, Austria on December 22. (The year was 1808)

The Beethoven concert of December 1808 was a benefit concert held for Ludwig van Beethoven at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna. This concert then called an Akademie, occurred in a very cold hall and lasted for four hours. Its featured performers were an orchestra, chorus, vocal soloists, and the composer was featured as a soloist at the piano. Beethoven biographer Barry Cooper refers to the concert, in terms of its content, as the "most remarkable" of Beethoven's career.
