personal life was marked by a heroic struggle against encroaching deafness, and some of his most important works were composed during the last 10 years of his life when he was quite unable to hear. The first movement is grim and resolute yet charged with constant conflict and energy as glimmers of hope swirl through a relentless storm. (Waldstein) The compositions belonging to the years at Bonnexcluding those probably begun at Bonn but revised and completed in Viennaare of more interest immigrants in the United Sstates Of America to the Beethoven student than to the ordinary music lover. Midway between the rigidity of Kark and the freedom of Nikisch, it boasts sensitive pacing and rhythmic variety, and a surprisingly vivid recording for the time in which tympani and brass fuel the finale. In 1783 he was also appointed continuo player to the Bonn opera. The visit was cut short when, after a short time, Beethoven received the news of his mothers death. But rather than settling our historical curiosity, the results raise an interesting question despite careful scholarship to emulate the original sound, why are the results all so different? By 1787 he had made such progress that Maximilian Francis, archbishop-elector since 1784, was persuaded to send him to Vienna to study with Mozart. His most useful social contact came in 1788 with the arrival in Bonn of Ferdinand, Graf (count) von Waldstein, a member of the highest Viennese aristocracy and a music lover.

Widely regarded as the greatest composer who ever lived, Ludwig van Beethoven dominates a period of musical history as no one else before or since. In musical form he was a considerable innovator, widening the scope of sonata, symphony, concerto, and quartet, while in the, ninth Symphony he combined the worlds of vocal and instrumental music in a manner never before attempted. Beethoven may indeed be described as the last and finest flower on the Mannheim tree. Nearly as thrilling are his two studio recordings a fleet and streamlined 1953 LP (BMG 60255) and a richer, more complex and astoundingly powerful 1939 set of 78s (BMG 60270) as well as a 1939 NBC concert (Naxos 110823). As a great composer, Beethoven delved deeply into his material to explore and develop its full potential, and as an equally great editor, he constantly simplified and tightened. The most prophetic of the entries, written shortly after Mozarts death, runs: The spirit of Mozart is mourning and weeping over the death of her beloved. An interesting hybrid approach is taken by the Chamber Orchestra of Europe (Teldec who combine the power of mostly modern instruments with the recovered techniques of Beethoven's time.
