NEW DELHI: Hailed as one of the best composers of all time, Ludwig van Beethoven was paid a tribute with a doodle that lets Google users arrange his sheet music in the right order to proceed.

Beethoven_Google Doodle.JPGIt’s unclear when Beethoven was born, but December 17 marks the 245th anniversary of his baptism. Therefore, it provided the team of Google "a rare opportunity to construct a game in step with beautiful music, whose evocative moods, drama, lightness, and depth made conjuring visuals to match it rollickingly fun".

"Help Beethoven's unfortunate journey to the symphony hall by arranging his masterpieces in time for the big crescendo," reads google.com.

Google users need to arrange Beethoven’s sheet music, in a puzzle format, in the correct order to move on to the next step. It's not an easy task as the user has to mix up the pieces on his way to conduct a concert.

The game focuses on the composer’s works like "Fifth symphony" and "Moonlight Sonata". 

The engineers involved in making it include Jordan Thompson, Jonathan Shneier, Kris Hom and Charlie Gordon, with the design lead by Leon Hong. Animatics/Additional Art is by Nate Swinehart and piano recordings by Tim Shneier, and production is by Gregory Capuano.
