He then began learning music from noble composers like Gottlob Neefe. Gottlob Neefe not only taught Beethoven music, he taught him about philosophers, ancient and modern. His childhood was filled with musical harmony. Yet, there have been rumors that Ludwig’s father would lock him in the basement and would force him to practice music, which Ludwig didn’t enjoy much. Whether the rumors of Beethoven being abused were false claims or not, he still enjoyed music very much and put his talent to use at its full potential.
As life went by, Mozart realized his health was failing and he was getting sick. As Beethoven found out, he decided to be independent in his music career. Mozart was more known for the father of the classical period. Mozart’s music during the classical period was prolific. Beethoven knew and loved Mozart’s music for its pureness and eloquence of it.
Of course, the trend of music has been changing all the time. Classical music, compared with modern pop music, is really different than the last one. However, great music are still listened by people; therefore, it does not matter when they were composed neither who composed them. Classical music is one of the categories that is old, but people still enjoy to listen to it. The ones of the famous great Classical music composers, Ludwig van Beethoven who is well known for his deafness and work which is Choral: Symphony No.9, Frederic Chopin for Minute Waltz, Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, and Peter Tchaikovsky are influenced by one Classical music composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
As Beethoven’s writing began to flourish with creativity and imagination, he wrote the ‘Rasumovsky’ quartets that mark the ‘middle’ period in his career. Finally, the late quartets (also last works that Beethoven ever wrote) mark a cornerstone for various composers writing string quartets through the Romantic era and into the 20th century with use of counterpoint and harmony, especially. This essay will show how these works display great importance in developing the string quartet through Beethoven’s career, and also how their influences can be found in string quartets of other composers. In Beethoven’s early quartets, he takes great inspiration from both Mozart and his tutor, Joseph Haydn. Before Beethoven wrote his first quartet he had already written several different compositions for he wanted to really establish his own style of writing first.
Known as the Father of Symphony and the inventor of string quartets, the examples and styles that Haydn set forth were relied upon by Mozart and Beethoven in creating their own respective masterpieces. Born in a small town just inside Austrian borders, Haydn did not have much of a chance to be anything other than a wheelwright like his father. However, his father was a man who loved to sing and when Haydn was a boy, he memorized almost every song his father sang. This was his beginning in music. Later on, he received an education from his uncle where he gained more of an interest in music.
Ludwig van Beethoven, a German composer, generally considered one of the greatest composers in the Western tradition. Born in Bonn, Beethoven was reared in to the capricious discipline of his father, a singer in the court chapel. In1789, because of his father's alcoholism, the young Beethoven became a court musician in order to support his family. His early compositions under the tutelage of German composer Christian Gottlob Neefe, particularly the funeral on the death of Holy Roman Emperor Joseph || in1790, signaled an important talent, and it was planned that Beethoven study in Vienna, Australia, with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Although Mozart's death in 1791 prevented this, Beethoven went to Vienna in 1792, and he became a pupil of an Australian composer named Joseph Haydn.
';(Cooper, 383) Beethoven lived an interesting and exciting life filled with drama, revolution and innovation. His composition ability was partially influenced by his upbringing; his father’s push to become a musician and his above average education. Beethoven, however, had a gift, or a natural knack, for this form of art which allowed him to become one of the greatest composers of all time. This paper will dive in to Ludwig van Beethoven’s personal life, chronologically and precisely explaining factors that shaped him into the man he was. After his personal life is thoroughly charted, a shift in content will lead the reader to explore his many works and elements there of.
Ludwig van Beethoven Beethoven's importance lies not only in his work, but also in his life (Tames, 4). Included in my report is proof that Beethoven was one of the greatest composers of the Romantic era. In this proof is a brief description of his life. This will help you understand how he felt when he wrote his music. Also, there will be a description of all his symphonies.
The two well-known composers of classical style of music Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven. The both of these men were very influential figures in there time and even now within the classical music community and still have work that they composed that is held to the highest standard even to this day. The both of these very much passive listeners where similar in many ways in their style and how they composed. But with this being seen you would automatically assume that there musical personality would also be the same with what came out of the genius of the both of them but it was complete opposite, but most think that if they were within the same ime frames of composing they might have been the same. Beethoven known for pushing the limits and boundaries of classical music was considered a very big influence within the Classical era of music with him also being within the transition of the Romantic era of music as well which shows the genius that came out of this composer who developed his own style.
When it comes to Beethoven’s life and his music, what makes him so memorable and so lasting is the creativity of his music and his personality. While reading the articles over Beethoven, I acknowledged that the development of his music distinguished his works from other composers. I believe this differentness is what allowed Beethoven to shape the identity of classical music. In his biography, we learned that his dad locked him up for extra practice, and beat him for making mistakes. Though I think this is a terrible thing to go through, his father must have realized his talents long before others.
