In the late 1790’s, Beethoven began to lose his hearing which was the worst possible fate for a musician. He then preferred to be alone and often wrote music during long walks in the woods. He was an unhappy, lonely man who relied on his art for strength.

Ludwig van BeethovenHis Music

Beethoven’s music is stronger and more romantic than that of his predecessors Haydn and Mozart. His symphonies are longer and more tuneful. They are clearly an expression of his personality. There is evidence from his sketchbooks that he composed with some difficulty, making several revisions. He wrote primarily instrumental compositions which included nine symphonies, a violin concerto, five piano concertos, and thirty piano sonatas.
