Celebrate Beethoven's Birthday with a Google Doodle

Beethoven loses his music to a gust of wind. Your job is to help him get the pages back in the proper order

Google is celebrating Beethoven's birthday with a little animated puzzle. Google is challenging year ear and music reading skills.  You must arrange the sections of the music manuscript in the proper order before you can hear the music and move on to the next segment.

Jordan Thompson, a member of the Google Doodle team spoke with Time Magazine about the idea behind today's Doodle.

Have fun...and Happy 245th birthday Ludwig!

You'll find the puzzle here.

Below, you'll find the finale to Beethoven's 9th Symphony, with 10,000 voices.  Hey...Beethoven would go BIG, or go home!
