WEBPUBLICAPRESS (New York) – Famous philosopher Gottfried Leibniz believed that from every tragedy, misfortune, or evil, there came a greater good. Whether or not we might agree, in this year of Beethoven’s 250th birthday, the triumph over adversity which is Beethoven’s trademark should be the standpoint from which to view, and respond to, the shocking misfortune of the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others, now discussed worldwide.

Many have been startled to learn, in the aftermath of the tragic death of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, of his love for composer Ludwig van Beethoven. Bryant had even learned to play the piano and perform portions of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.A New York Times article entitled “Bond Over Beethoven Led to Kobe Bryant’s Oscar for ‘Dear Basketball’”, a documentary based on a poem Bryant wrote, recounted the relationship between animator Glen Keane, who illustrated the documentary, and Bryant:
“Dear Basketball” illustrated the poem Bryant wrote in 2015 as a farewell to the sport he loved; it served as his announcement that the 2015-16 season would be his last. In the poem, recognizing that his body can no longer bear the game’s demands, he accepts the inevitably of retirement.
“… The two men bonded through a shared love of Beethoven. Keane, who had animated Beast in Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, was amazed to learn that in one championship game, “Kobe structured his performance and the strategy of the game to the rhythms of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.”
“Bryant explained in the 2017 interview: ‘Every game has a structure, just like a piece of music has structure and momentum. You have to be conscious of how that momentum is building to be able to shift or alter it.’”
A separate commentary added: “elsewhere (in his Showtime special), Bryant talks about the struggle he went through late in his career after a number of bad injuries, where he was fighting his body’s limitations to put it together for one last run at a title and one last bit of greatness. He said he thought a lot about Beethoven, who he said probably wasn’t supposed to write a ninth symphony while legally deaf, but he did it anyway. And Bryant found that comforting in a “if he can push himself to battle his body and do that, I can overcome my body to do this” kind of way. Kobe actually put out a basketball shoe in his line that was inspired by Beethoven’s Ninth.”
A meme appeared yesterday on Twitter with a picture of the Bryant shoe, and the words, “Be Like Kobe And Beethoven—Walk The Walk.”
Perhaps the second movement of Beethoven’s Third Symphony the “Eroica,” were one way for all of those that cared about Bryant, and what he stood for, to reflect upon his passing. The Foundation for the Revival of Classical Culture joins those around the world that believe, as Bryant believed, in the power of music, particularly the power of Beethoven, to cause people to rise above themselves, including in what seems the most unbearable of tragedies, and to emerge victorious, even as they rise above their mortality into morality.
