Music Composers

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Ludwig Van Beethoven
Composer Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Bonn, Germany. He was an artist and was in love with music and instruments. His whole life he was very deaf. But some of his best and well known works were composed during the last 10 years of his life, when he was quite unable to hear.Composer and pianist Ludwig Van Beethoven, widely considered the greatest composer of all time, was born on December 16,1770 ,but we are not sure if it is the exact date of his birth.
Beethoven had two younger brothers, Caspar and Johann. Beethoven's mother was a very caring and helpful woman. His father loved music and was a composer. That helped Beethoven alot.
