I’ve chosen Beethoven (Ludwig Van Beethoven)
For my Arts Inspiration Because I like & play piano. Beethoven was a famous composer and pianist. He was born in 1770 & died in 1827 (aged 56), he displayed his talent at a young age and was taught to play by his Dad
( Johann Van Beethoven) when he was in his 20s he started to lose his hearing, & when he was in his 40s his hearing had almost gone completely. In 1811 he gave up performing in public but carried on composing.
I learned to play one of Beethoven’s songs,
(Für Elise), I didn’t even know it was his song until I researched him.
These are some of his overtures;
•Symphony No. 1-9
Music is the higher revelation than philosophy.
Music is the meditator between the spiritual and the sensual life.
Music should strike fire from the heart of the man, and bring tears from the eyes of a woman.
