250th Anniversary Of The Birth Of Ludwig Van Beethoven - Set for only GBP £1.52
Ludwig van Beethoven (Bonn, 1770 – Vienna, 1827), a German composer with Flemish roots, spent most of his life in Vienna. Although he is officially given an established position among the trio of composers of Viennese Classicism, which also includes Joseph Haydn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as the youngest among the three, he is undoubtedly also one of the originators of Romantic music. He performed as both a conductor and an excellent pianist, and he was also the first major composer who lived mostly as a freelance artist without permanent employment. Haughty and proud, in a continuous yet unfulfilled search for love, he diligently composed, striving for perfection in each motif and phrase.
