Ludwig Van Beethoven
A great German Composer
The one and only!
Beethoven was a very influential German artist and composer. He was a very compelling in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras. Beethoven was very well know for his symphonies. He often was a threat to the other composers because of the remarkable ones that he created.
Some of Beethoven's famous pieces:
*Für Elise (a popular piano piece to learn).
Beethoven's loss of hearing
Although Beethoven lost his hearing he continued to keep up with his great influences of music. Considering him going deaf he never stopped. Being deaf only influenced him more. He continued to keep going and creating remarkable music. Beethoven found it very unfair about his loss of hearing. He wrote a text expressing his disgust about how unfair life was.
Beethoven went to meet Mozart in Vienna. Mozart influenced Beethoven very much. For example Beethoven took several lessons with him. Mozart was always encouraging Beethoven to do great things and perform. Beethoven admired Mozart's music and continued to do so after he died. He was also influenced very much by him because as a child Beethoven's father pushed him to be just like Mozart.
The Piano and Haydyn
Beethoven was also influenced by an Austrian composer named Haydyn. They meet in Vienna and Beethoven took many lessons with him. He then began his spontaneity on the piano. However Beethoven and Haydyn had a falling out. Beethoven claimed "he did not help me at all." But what he did not relieze was how Haydyn had a huge impact on Beethoven's dedication to the Piano Trio. Without the help of Haydyn this composition would have never been published.
