Ludwig Van Beethoven 1771-1827

One of the greatest masters of music, Beethoven is particularly admired for his orchestral works, including symphonies and concertos plus sonatas and chamber music. His early work until 1802, shows a progressive mastery of the high classical style of Haydn and Mozart.

A general growth in the proportions and rhetorical power of Beethoven's works in the period 1798-1802 culminates in the highly dramatic compositions that mark the birth of Romanticism in music. The late period, during which he grew deaf, marked a change from dramatic to introspective-inspired music.

The highly expressive music Beethoven produced, infused with a sense of his own struggles to overcome adversity, for centuries has inspired composers like Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Wagner and continues to do so today.
