Ludwig van Beethoven

December 16, 1770 - March 26, 1827
Born in Bonn, Beethoven lived most of his adult life in Vienna where he became perhaps the most celebrated composer that the world has known. Using classical compositional structures as a starting point, Beethoven built a bridge to the romantic era and beyond.
