Google honours Google honours Beethoven

NEW DELHI: Hailed as one of the best composers of all time, Ludwig van Beethoven was paid a tribute with a doodle that lets Google users arrange his sheet music in the right order to proceed.

It’s unclear when Beethoven was born, but December 17 marks the 245th anniversary of his baptism. Therefore, it provided the team of Google “a rare opportunity to construct a game in step with beautiful music, whose evocative moods, drama, lightness, and depth made conjuring visuals to match it rollickingly fun”.

“Help Beethoven’s unfortunate journey to the symphony hall by arranging his masterpieces in time for the big crescendo,” reads

Google users need to arrange Beethoven’s sheet music, in a puzzle format, in the correct order to move on to the next step. The user has to mix up the pieces on his way to conduct a concert.

The game focuses on the composer’s works Fifth Symphony and Moonlight Sonata. The engineers involved in making it include Jordan Thompson, Jonathan Shneier, Kris Hom and Charlie Gordon, with the design lead by Leon Hong.
