Composer Ludwig van Beethoven was baptized on December 17, 1770, in Bonn, Germany.Beethoven died on March 26, 1827, at the age of 56. His personal life was marked by a struggle against deafness, and some of his most important works were composed during the last 10 years of his life, when he was quite unable to hear.In the first spring of the new century, on April 2, 1800, Beethoven debuted his Symphony No. 1 in C major at the Royal Imperial Theater in Vienna. Although Beethoven would grow to detest the piece "In those days I did not know how to compose," he later remarked the graceful and melodious symphony nevertheless established him as one of Europe's most celebrated composers.
