Beethoven's Legacy

Beethoven was a very talented musician at a young age, but even better when he was an adult. He went through a lot of trouble to compose music, which shows that he had a lot of persistence. Following up on that, he was deaf and he had a very short temper which is extremely hard for a musician to go through that and make music. Therefore, that is the reason that Beethoven was a magnificent music composer.
