Well, it’s not Beethoven’s birthday, but the celebration of his Baptism! No one knows when he was born, but records do record when he was baptized.
Instead of the customary doodle, Google decided to create an interactive game instead. Starting out with Beethoven stepping in some horse manure which causes his music to scatter to the four winds. You just have to put his music back into order, which is a mean task if you are a musician who has had a 400+ page book slip from your music stand in the middle of a concert.
Rumor has it that Google had been brainstorming this for several years. Check out the introductory video below and help Beethoven get his music together in time for his concert!
