Get to Know Beethoven in 2020
I’m sure there are a few things you could name about Ludwig van Beethoven off the top of your head: He’s one of the most famous composers of all time. He went deaf. His Symphony Number 9 is played in many movies and television shows… but there is so much more to Beethoven than you realize. We were lucky enough to visit Bonn, Germany this past month to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. On this trip, we learned about who Beethoven was as a person and how his environment and the political turmoil of his time affected him and his music.
