when he was young, van Beethoven, took an interest in music and his father taught him all day and all night, in returning to the house from music practice or the tavern. Without a doubt, the child was gifted and his father envisioned creating a new Mozart, a child prodigy.


On March 26th 1778, at the age of 7 ½, Ludwig Van Beethoven gave his first public performance at Cologne. His father announced that he was 6 years-old. Because of this Beethoven always thought that he was younger than he actually was. Even much later, when he received a copy of his baptism certificate, he thought it belonged to his brother Ludwig Maria, who was born two years before him and died as a child.
