It's hard to imagine a better way to get to know the Beethoven Frieze, short of a trip to Vienna. Gilles Gubelmann provided an excellent presentation on a fascinating subject.
I would recommend that participants are given clear instructions for how to best ask questions. The host/scholar should fully read questions and participant's name in the Chat before answering them.
I've already signed up for more. This is a great idea to keep your guides and company going during this COVID emergency, as well as providing a very welcome relief from all the horrors.
I would love the presenters to give book and/or movie recommendations. It would be great if they could email these out to participants after each conversation. This way, I could explore the topics more on my own. Also, if we could have access to the power point presentation slides it would be great. I understand that the presenters may have an issue with having their work out there for others to appropriate, but if participants could have limited access to it (say, 24 hours) it would allow us to review and take notes on things we may have missed in the live presentation.
It seems these conversation are getting better over time. We have done four? so far and some of the presenters are starting to take advantage of the ability to display art in detail as well as videos.
