Your Question

Q: Was Beethoven really deaf when he composed his music? (Dylan)

A: Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was a German composer. He was influenced by the earlier works of Wolfgang A. Mozart and Joseph Haydn. Ludwig started playing the piano when he was very young. By 1801, Ludwig began to lose his hearing, and by 1819, he was completely deaf. On May 24, 1824, Ludwig's Ninth Symphony (his most famous symphony) was first performed. It was an incredible success with the audience wildly cheering, waving handkerchiefs, and throwing hats. Ludwig could only watch the audience's reaction; he could not hear it.
