It’s Beethoven 2020! What does that mean? Well, this year marks the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth. Beethoven, one of the most famous composers of all time, was born 250 years ago in Bonn, Germany. Unfortunately, many people do not associate Beethoven with Bonn, nor do they even know he is from there because Beethoven wrote his most well-known symphonies in Vienna; so, that’s where people tend to associate Beethoven with.
