Beethoven: the Moon, the Beatles and a little love

Speaking 'Beethoven', we mean first and foremost 'Moonlight Sonata', is thoroughly permeated with love longing and sadness about what you really want, but it is impossible to achieve. German composer Ludwig van Beethoven lived a remarkably productive life, however, is to achieve personal happiness and could not. Perhaps the reason was its many ardent passions women of the aristocratic circles of what do mere mortals were not supposed to. Maybe he was just unlucky to meet the one who would have appreciated, understood and loved the raging passions of the inner world of Beethoven...
He was a native of a simple family. Parents (his father was a court tenor, his mother - the daughter of the chef) wanted to make Ludwig the second of Mozart, whose fame a musical Prodigy thundered at the time in Europe. However, the boy's fate turned out differently, after his mother's death father took to drink, and he, seventeen years old, had to work to support younger brothers. Dream to take lessons from Mozart himself remained a dream. However, Beethoven was elated and inspired by the great Austrian, who heard him improvise and he cried, startled; 'He will force all to talk about themselves!'
Talking about Beethoven began after his move to Vienna as a virtuoso pianist. His mentor was himself Haydn, but he was unable to give much of a crooked and sharp-tongued young man. Soon, Beethoven begins to take lessons from Antonio Salieri.
The rise of the musical career of Beethoven was marred developed his deafness. For the composer it was like death, but Beethoven did not give up and continues to create. Yet the rumor is he is, he listens to the murmur of water, birds singing, and doing, doing, doing...
The period of creativity of Ludwig van Beethoven coincided with the time when Europe was seething revolutionary spirit. The French revolution was joyfully greeted by the composer, however, the self-proclaimed Napoleon the Emperor bitterly disappointed him.

For 15 years, Beethoven had the idea to write a grandiose Symphony, which would be able to unite, to bring people together. The result of creative combustion has become world-famous Symphony No. 9 premiered in 1824. It was her fourth piece, 'Ode to joy', used today as the Anthem of the European Union, its stunning universal sound, exulting and admiring life. If in doubt, it's soul scratching cats and the future seems gray and bleak and plunge into the world of the 9th Symphony of Beethoven. It will exalt You from the lowlands to the heavens promised, inspire and instill confidence in the future!
