Some of his greatest works were composed while Beethoven was going :

    Ludwig van Beethoven (/ ˈ l ʊ d v ɪ ɡ v æ n ˈ b eɪ t oʊ v ən / (); German: [ˈluːtvɪç fan ˈbeːtʰoːfn̩] (); baptised 17 December – 26 March ) was a German composer and pianist; his music is amongst the most performed of the classical music repertoire, and he is one of the most admired composers in the history of Western music. His works span the transition from the Born: Bonn. “This book is at once the author’s memoir as longtime first violinist of the Takács String Quartet; a history of the composition of some of Beethoven’s quartets; and a meditation on how those Beethoven quartets, their reception, and their influence have shaped the Takács Quartet (and, one presumes, various other performing quartets).

    Late Beethoven is a rich tapestry of original perspectives on Beethoven's music. Solomon sees the Seventh Symphony as a deployment of the rhythms of antiquity in an effort to revalidate the premises of the Classical world; the Ninth as an essay on the prospects and limits of affirmative, monumental endings; and the "Diabelli" Variations as a /5(1). Beethoven’s output in this genre covers all three compositional periods, from early essays under the watchful guidance of his teacher Neefe in to late works dating from A small number of folksong arrangements in which Beethoven deliberately transposed the melody from the key given to him by George Thomson are also examined.¹.
