Beethoven early life
Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Germany in 1770 and died in 1827 at the age of 56. He grew up during a time of great social changes. He loved nature and social justice. His music reflected these loves. He was born during the Classical period. His awesome musical talents created a new era of music called the Romantic period. He forever changed the course of music history with his inspired compositions. Beethoven's father and grandfather were professional musicians, so it is no surprise that Beethoven entered the field of music, too. In fact, it had been the custom for hundreds of years for children to enter the professions of their parents.
Beethoven as a deaf
Beethoven's personal life was troubled. Around age 28, he started to become deaf, which led him to contemplate suicide. He was attracted to unattainable women, whom he idealized; he never married. Some scholars believe his period of low productivity from about 1812 to 1816 was caused by depression resulting from Beethoven's realization that he would never marry. Beethoven quarrelled, often bitterly, with his relatives and others (including a painful and public custody battle over his nephew Karl); he frequently treated other people badly. He moved often and had strange personal habits, such as wearing filthy clothing even as he washed compulsively. He often had financial troubles.
More of his creativities
Many listeners perceive an echo of Beethoven's life in his music, which often depicts struggle followed by triumph. This description is often applied to Beethoven's creation of masterpieces in the face of his severe personal difficulties.Beethoven was often in poor health, especially after his mid-20s, when he began to suffer from serious stomach pains. In 1826 his health took a drastic turn for the worse. His death the following year was attributed to liver disease, but modern research on a lock of Beethoven's hair taken at the time of his death, and a few pieces of his skull shows that lead poisoning could well have contributed to his ill-health and ultimately to his death (the levels of lead were more than 100 times higher than levels found in most people today). The source of the lead poisoning may have been fish from the heavily polluted Danube River and lead compounds used to sweeten wines. It is unlikely that lead poisoning was the cause of his deafness, which several researchers think was caused by an autoimmune disorder such as systemic lupus erythematosus. The hair analysis did not detect mercury, which is consistent with the view that Beethoven did not have syphilis (syphilis was treated with mercury compounds at the time). The absence of drug metabolites suggests Beethoven avoided opiate painkillers. Beethoven continued working on his music until he died in March 1827. His last musical sketches belong to the composition of a string quintet
