Ludwig van Beethoven
Classical and Romantic era Beethoven: Sad Genius
--Most famous composition was "Ode to Joy."
--He was deaf and he still made music composition
--His father would beat him up for playing wrong notes
"Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives." - Ludwig van Beethoven
This quote means to me is that music is another side of you.
---Lived in Germany
---Played Piano and Violin
---Having left school at age 11 to help with household income, Beethoven never learned how to multiply or divide. To his last day if he had to multiply, say, 60 x 52, he’d lay out 60 52 times over and add them up.
