I couldn't agree more
Beethoven is in my mind more of a Romantic composer, but that's just because he pretty much bridged the Classical era to the Romantic era.

Did you know he cut off the legs of his piano so it would sit on the floor? He would then compose based off the vibrations he would feel.

Have you ever listened to Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Beethoven's Last Night? Awesomeness right there.

I had to sing this song at a music camp I worked. Ode to Beethoven. Pretty awesome as well.

Then there's all the Beethoven I've played. Eroica, Ode to Joy, bits of the Fifth Symphony.

Gotta love Beethoven.

As someone who's performed both his entire fifth symphony, and the fourth movement of his eighth symphony, I have to say...I adore Beethoven. The power of his music, and the history behind just the fifth symphony alone is spectacular.

If you didn't know, his fifth symphony is sort of seen as a musical biography of his life. It starts out dark, because as a child he was pushed to be perfect just like Mozart. There is also the darker time where he tried to adopt his cousin from an abusive household. Eventually, after he realizes that his world is so dark, he triumphs over it and embraces his life, leading as to why the fourth movement is so powerful: he's overcome his hurdles. Or at least, so he thought. Considering his hearing got worse and all.

Beethoven is such a magnificent composer, I'm in love with his music, same with Bach, Mozart, and a modern composer, Clint Mansell.

I don't understand people who think this type of music is boring or "not good," to be honest, this is the best type of music there is. The mother of all music. ♥ I play the Cello and the Viola, along with other instruments, played it for a very long time.

Don't say 'whom' if you aren't going to use it right. It just makes you look like an uneducated fop.



I enjoy Beethoven a great deal. The second movement of his seventh symphony gives me chills every time I listen to it.


It makes me mad when people say they love Beethoven and their favorite piece is Fur Elise, Moonlight sonata, or Ode to Joy - because that's all ANYONE knows of his music. That's like me saying I love Tchaikovsky because I like the Nutcracker (which I do, but he has several other practically unheard of musical works which even HE liked better than the Nutcracker) or Mozart because of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, or Bach because of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor. I LOVE Bach and nearly everything he's written, but that Toccata and Fugue are just so overplayed, and often poorly done, that it's ruined the piece for me.

It's like this.

But Classical composers instead of the Beatles.

He began losing his hearing in his late 20's. It is said that it could be because of his childhood trauma when his dad used to box his ears when he practiced something incorrectly; while it made him an excellent pianist, and composer, it contributed to his health decline. crying
