Ludwig van Beethoven
December 17, 1770 – March 26, 1827
The German composer and pianist Ludwig van Beethoven was one of the most influential composers ever to grace classical music. His contributions were crucial to the evolution from the Classical and Romantic musical eras. Known as a quick-tempered personality, Beethoven’s life was filled with tumult and drama.
Beethoven was recognized as a prodigy as a young age, and was trained by his father. He played viola, meeting other notable players of the time. At 22, Beethoven moved to Vienna from Bonn, and studied under Franz Joseph Haydn. The relationship was not an easy one, however it became a catalyst for Beethoven’s style. During this time he was known for his virtuosity as a pianist, and as a composer, and began composing his own works. His pieces were considered unique and bold.
In 1801, Beethoven realized he was going deaf. Despite this, this time was marked by brilliant compositions such as Symphony No. 3. He continued to compose for a decade even while deaf, and his most triumphant pieces originate from this time.
