    tk is spot on, as usual!

    the most common way you'll see this written in English is:

    Generation after generation [has enjoyed the amazing compositions of Beethoven]

    all the best.

    ps. (you may already be aware of this)
    "A แล้ว A เล่า" is a very useful and commonly used construction, meaning "A after A" or "one A after another"

    eg.
    คนแล้วคนเล่า
    one person after another [came to ask about mum's health]
    วันแล้ววันเล่า
    day after day [i tried to recite the poem]
    จานแล้วจานเล่า
    one dish after another [was brought to the table]
