You can pretend to know how to read music for five minutes.
If renowned composer and pianist Ludwig Van Beethoven were alive today, he’d be 245 years old.
That’s normally the kind of summary one would get from Google’s daily doodle, but for today, users are rewarded with a fun game of sorts involving Beethoven’s masterpieces.
Once you hit play on the doodle, a short video plays, after which you are tasked with piecing together four of Beethoven’s most famous works, including the Fifth Symphony and Für Elise. Each song is divided into pieces, and it’s your job to arrange it in the correct order to play the sweet, sweet music. Once you complete all four, Beethoven will be able to enter the music hall and take his place at the conductor’s podium.
It’s a fairly easy game to play, but beware: You may suddenly crave a full Beethoven musical makeover. If you do indeed find yourself in the mood for a symphonic adventure, YouTube has you covered. Here’s a great hour-long chunk of Beethoven bliss to get you started:
