• Ludwig van Beethoven
....
• Gennan Classicai/Romantic Period Composer (Baptized 1770-1827)
Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Bonn, Germany in
1770, to Johann van Beethoven and Maria

•,... Magdalena Keverich. Although Beethoven's exact


birth date is not known, his family celebrated it on
December 16. Beethoven's first music instruction

....
carne from his father Johann who was said to have
been a harsh instructor. Johann later asked his friend,
Tobias Pfeiffer, to teach young Beethoven. lt seems
that the harsh treatment continued, as Johann and his
friend would come home late on occasion to pull
young Ludwig from his bed to practice until morning.

Beethoven's talent was recognized early on, and by


1778 he was learning to play the organ and viola in addition to his piano studies.
His most important teacher in Bonn was Christian Gottlob Neefe, a Court
organist. lt was Neefe who helped Beethoven publish his first piece of music.

In 1787, the young Beethoven decided to travel to Vienna, hoping to meet and
study composition with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. lt is not clear if he succeeded
in meeting or studying with Mozart. By his twenties Beethoven began to suffer
from hearing loss. He did, however, continue to compase, conduct and perform,
even after he was completely deaf. One story recalls that after conducting the
premiere of his Ninth Symphony he had to be turned around to see the
overwhelming applause of the audience. When he heard nothing, he began to
weep.


l

•.. Ludwig van Beethoven's most popular pieces are his Fifth Symphony, Für Elise
for piano soto, and his Ninth Symphony, which includes the melody Ode to Joy~
He is remembered as an important composer in the transitional period between
the Classical Era and Romantic Era in music and continues to be one of the most
famous and influential composers, of all time .
