Released in 1801 and not a scratch ...

Beautifully followed by Vienna Teng, which complements it perfectly.  Thanks, RP.

I think this is the most moving song I've ever heard
This is pretty good - a little modern for my tastes, though.

Thank you  Beethoven  for
Moonlight Sonata
 

For me this is 8  - Most Excellent

Thank you both  :-)

And as others have pointed out that, for me, is exactly the point of listening to RP.  I know of no other site, nor anything station that traverses the airwaves from source to listener, that does anything even remotely as appealing as this site does.  Bill and crew have afforded me a listen to some music I know; the old standards and their variations and such.  But they have also opened my ears to a range of music which, left to my own devices, I would never have heard or bothered to listen to simply by dint of not knowing the artist.  They keep the veil of musical complacency from descending and blinkering my sensibilities.  And for that I lift my glass and say....bravo!  {#Cheers}  I don't know how you do it...in listening and finding all of it to present to your global audience...but I applaud you for it all the same....you have a finger on the pulse of, or a sense for, some very tasty earfulness.

This song plays so quietly I can't hear it unless I turn the volume way up. 😯

 
Yes, it is very silent, I guess it does use the entire 16-bit amplitude range at times, but I would dare to apply a tiny bit of dynamic range compression to make this more radio-friendly.
All other 10s fall behind this.

Thank  you Highlowsel and yofitofu!
This is exactly how i feel about Radio Paradise
My goodness, the man could even make scales give you the flashy tingles. Simply amazing and transcendent. 
Where's the 20 rating when you need it.

RP has the artist as Beethoven
should it be Rudolf Serkin? 

 
Funny how that goes with classical composers. With pop music, we list the performer, not the songwriter - even if it's a brilliantly complex composition like Bohemian Rhapsody or something.

Maybe it has something to do with likeness to the original. If Apocalyptica did cello version of Moonlight Sonata, we would probably list the artist. 
lovely photos to go with it on slidesow

Very good. I've played this for meditation several times. I have to wonder what Beethoven would think if he were transported to the present and heard his piece on such a crazy contraption, his songs coming out of a tiny box with speakers. Then we'd probably really get to see 'roll over Beethoven' for reals.

Safe to say RP listeners have diverse tastes?

Yes, because it is Beethoven it deserves an automatic "10".  
(and, what is wrong with those 27 people who gave this a "sucko-barfo"????)
