Ludwig van Beethoven

Beethoven (1770-1827) was a German composer, and arguably the most significant figure in the transition from the Classical to the Romantic era. The most notable characteristic of Beethoven's style is the use of strong structure to develop epic themes that unfold like a dramatic novel. His greatest works include: Fur Elise, Midnight Sonata, and Symphonies 5 & 9.
