What kind of a man could create the dreaming melodies of the "Moonlight Sonata"? Give birth to the dramatic voice of the "Fifth Symphony"? Compose the "Ode to Joy"? Meet Ludwig van Beethoven, the musical genius, the passionate artist, the incorrigible man, the composer from whose soul music breathed.
You will hear about:
- Groomed for greatness
- Beethoven’s deafness and depression
- "Für Elise"
- Guardianship of his nephew Karl
- Karl’s suicide attempt
- Beethoven’s final notes
- And much more!
This will not be an idealistic story of perfection. Just like his music, Beethoven’s story will have its fearful lows and its exulting crescendos. It will have its repeated themes. It will have its sudden surprises. And it will speak to the heart.
