Born in Bonn, Germany, Ludwig van Beethoven was a deaf German composer. Beethoven displayed his musical talents at an early age and was taught by his father Johann van Beethoven. He studied composition in Vienna with Joseph Haydn, and gained a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. By his 30s his hearing began to deteriorate. In 1811 he gave up conducting and performing in public but continued to compose; many of his most admired works come from these last 15 years of his life, by when he had gone completely deaf.
Beethoven is regarded as the greatest composer of all time. Beethoven was a musical prodigy. Starting his career in music as a young lad, he helped widen scope of sonata, symphony, concerto and quartet. With a combination of vocals and instruments, Beethoven innovated music.
Ludwig Van Beethoven is best-known compositions include 9 symphonies, 5 piano concertos, 1 violin concerto, 32 piano sonatas, 16 string quartets, his great Mass the Missa solemnis and an opera, Fidelio. Despite emergence of new and extra ordinary music talent over the years, Beethoven’s prodigious skills stand unchallenged.
