Collca publishes ebook biography of Beethoven
Ever wondered how someone might go about composing music with rapidly deteriorating hearing? Beethoven, one of the greatest composers of all time, did just that with amazing results. Read more about this extraordinary man in this bitesize biography.
Discover in Ludwig van Beethoven: BiteSize Biography how Beethoven went from an unhappy childhood with an alcoholic father to become a young man who had moved to Vienna for the chance to grow not only as a musician but as a composer and learn from the great Haydn. Find out also how Beethoven became a virtuouso pianist by playing in competitions against others and then moved on to performing his own compositions in front of an enraptured audience.
In this biography you will also find out about Beethoven's personal life. Learn how he was unlucky in love, going from one rejection to another before finally falling in love with a married woman he could never be with.
