Ludwig van Beethoven

Beethoven

Did you know?

• Beethoven has had a profound influence on generations of composers since the
19th century. His compositions were an important demonstration of the transition
from 18th century classicism to 19th century romanticism and he is considered by
many scholars to be the first true romantic composer
• By the time he reached his mid forties Beethoven was completely deaf. Although
this did not effect his composing capabilities it made performing extremely difficult
for him, and he often communicated using a notebook
• Beethoven died in Vienna, Austria. His funeral was held at the church of the Holy
Trinity and was attended by thousands of people, including fellow composer, Franz
Schubert
