Beethoven's Slow Movements

As a supplement to the lifelong learning class I am currently teaching at Western New Mexico University, here’s a collection of slow movements from Ludwig van Beethoven’s symphonies, concertos and piano sonatas. May the meditative quality of each movement sooth your soul and calm your mind. (My personal favorite is the adagio from the Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat.)
