An occasional addendum to last year's 'Captivating Moments',
with JIM STOKES
One of the happiest musical moments in my life was writing / directing / producing Beethoven's Tenth, a drama / adventure movie about finding the lost tenth Symphony of Beethoven. My hometown area of Minneapolis / St Paul made a lovely practical shooting stage for the exteriors. For instance, the Basilica of St Mary in Minneapolis became a monastery at the time of Beethoven. And the in-city lakes and woods were transformed into Vienna countryside.
