In 1977, the spacecraft Voyager launched into space. It’s been going on an adventure exploring outer space for over 42 years!
In case Alien’s encounter Voyager, NASA decided to bring a time capsule. In it is a Golden Record, plated with real gold. It contains what some people view as the most incredible music created by humankind.
One selection is from Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 13 in B flat, Opus 130, Cavatina, performed by Budapest String Quartet.
This was the last major piece of music he composed before his death. He never witnessed the first performance. He had already lost his hearing by this time.
It’s 6 beautiful minutes that whispers to your soul. There’s suffering, hope, beauty, and acceptance. Beethoven expresses feelings and colors words can not.
