Ludwig Van Beethoven, of German Origin was born on December 17, 1770 in the home of Johann who was proficient teacher of violin, piano and voice. Teaching music was his bread and butter as he was a chapel master (Kapellmeister). Since his early age, Beethoven used to sing soprano in the very same electoral chapel where his father was the chapel master who taught Beethoven, violin and piano. Since 8 years of age, he studied with quite a lot of local organists, even received piano lessons from Tobias Friedrich Pfeiffer, where violinist like Franz Rovantini present him violin and viola lessons. Even though as a born artist, Beethoven's musical brilliance was associated to that of Mozart's, he never exceeded the elementary level in school education. In his teens in 1787, he went to Vienna for unknown reasons, but some say that he even met Mozart and took lessons from him. In a two weeks time when he came back his world suddenly changed for him as his mother died and his father became a drunkard. Beethoven, at the age of 19, formally requested to be known as the head of the house and started receiving half of his father's salary to support his siblings.
Beethoven shifted to Vienna in 1792 where his father died in the very same year. His father died in December that same year. He studied with Haydn for a limited time as there was a personality clash. Beethoven then studied with the best known teacher in Vienna, Johann Georg Albrechtsberger. With him he learned contrapuntal and counterpoint exercises in free writing, in two to four-part fugues, in imitation, choral fugues, double fugue, double counterpoint at the various intervals, canon and triple counterpoint. With this learning process he kept on composing more and more where in 1800, the first symphony and a septet (op. 20) was performed by him. At the age of 20 he became deaf and the whole life of Beethoven completely transformed though he tried to hide his impairment form the world but could not succeed. Beethoven used a particular rod connected to the soundboard on a piano that he could gnaw -the vibrations would then move from the piano to his jaw to amplify his insight of the sound. By 1814 he became totally deaf. After 1815, no successors came upfront to carry the patronage, and Beethoven relied mainly on selling composition rights and a meagre pension.
A born Genious
Now here the question arises how a great composer like Beethoven wrote symphonies 2, 3 (Symphony 3, Eroica was titled as Bonaparte, which was a tribute to Napoleon Bonaparte) and 4 within 1800-1806 which were his early days of deafness. What one can say about his imaginative thoughts as they were God gifted and no human can develop that by himself. If he would have been intelligent enough, he could have studied well in his school days. But he was the chosen one born to create such a music which is immortal. The talent was there within him it was just the brushing up of that talent was required which revolutionised the world of music. Evident in the test of time, his symphonies were established to be master pieces in conjunction with his other works. Beethoven loved a woman named Fanny,
