Beethoven's Life

The Four Periods of Bethoven's Life

The literature regarding the life of Beethoven is extremely rich and variate .We have separated Beethoven's biography in 4 major periods. The first one is between his birth in Boon and his leaving for Vienna (1770-1792). The second one documents his first years in Vienna (1792-1805). The third period is the one between 1805 and 1815, and the 4th is about the last years of his life. (1815-1827). To ease the reader's efforts we also added a chronological list that highlights the main events in the life of Beethoven.

The Life and Music

We consider that there is a very close relation between Beethovensís biography and his music. That is why we tried to describe the main events in his life and the way they influenced his creation which became a part of music history. Beethoven lived his life exactly the same as he composed his music: with infinite passion.
