Here is the story of Ludwig van Beethoven, greatest master of all, told with feeling and delicate skill for boys and girls. Perhaps he, too, will become a musician like all the Beethoven's, said Father Johann. From then on, the four-year-old Ludwig was kept at the piano hour after hour until the long exercises were mastered.

This is the inspiring story of his achievements against all odds of his growing deafness. "Long live Beethoven!" shouted the audience. But the master could not hear them, and as a singer turned him gently to face the audience, the noble head bowed low as he saw from the flutter of handkerchiefs, the applause that rained upon him. Thus Opal Wheeler captures the superb quality of musical greatness of Beethoven and communicates it to boys and girls. A deeply stirring tribute to the greatest composer of all.

Ages 4-15, soft-cover, 166 pages

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was born in Bonn, Germany but spent his adult life in Vienna, Austria.  He gained fame as early as age 8 as a virtuoso pianist.  He became a composer, conductor, and a performer.  He began to lose his hearing in his twenties and gradually became totally deaf.  He never married. His compositions were many.  He numbered his sonatas and symphonies.  His piano sonata #14 was named "Moonlight Sonata."  His symphony #3 was named "Eroica."  His 9th symphony is now called the"Anthem of Europe," with it's special section entitled "Ode to Joy."  His piano sonata "Pathethique" is his most celebrated piece.
