Martha Gottschalck about her piano piece „Gegen den Strom“:

„Bei meinem Stück habe ich mir vorgestellt wie Beethoven aufwächst. Es soll Situationen aus seinem Leben erzählen. Beethoven entwickelt sich „Gegenden Strom“, nicht wie andere Kinder. Mal ist er wild und mal ganz leise. Er hüpft die Treppen seines Geburtshauses in der Bonngasse rauf und runter, er komponiert, wird größer und geht hinaus in die Welt, wird krank und auch mal trotzig. Am Ende wird er taub und die Welt um ihn wird still.“
