Hymne an die Nacht (Beethoven, Ludwig van)

This discussion was moved here from Talk:Deutsche Weisen.

Hello Kdkeller. I have the suggestion that this work be catalogued as a work by Linder and not by van Beethoven. I think this work has little to do with Beethoven - I think he would turn in his grave. Linder has copied some chords, changed the rythm to some basic school level, transposed it, distorted the harmony, put some lyrics on it. I'm sorry, but as a Beethoven adept I just can't stand it!!

Hmm, I googled it and I didn't find evidence that it was arranged by Beethoven himself, but multiple cds and sheet music books are sold referring to Beethoven as the composer. If that would be true, I still couldn't believe it! You have any idea about the authenticity? Peter talk 03:57, 27 June 2007 (EDT)
Hello Peter, thanks for your question. In the German Wikipedia-article about Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 23 he is mentioned as the editor of Hymne an die Nacht. (First section of the headline 2. Satz: Andante con moto). But I don't know if Linder changed something for "his" edition. I hope I could help. Grüße! --Kdkeller 14:14, 28 June 2007 (EDT)
