Classical Masterpieces Of All Time- Ludwig Van Beethoven

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 - 1827)

Ludwig van Beethoven (December 16, 1770 - March 26, 1827) was a German composer and virtuoso pianist. He was a crucial figure in the transitional period between Classical and Romantic eras in Western classical music, and remains one of the most respected and influential composers of all time.

Born in Bonn, Germany, he moved to Vienna, Austria in his early twenties and settled there, studying with Joseph Haydn and quickly gaining a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. Beethoven's hearing gradually deteriorated beginning in his twenties, yet he continued to compose masterpieces and to conduct and perform even after he was completely deaf. He died on March 26, 1827.
