Beethoven opened up a new way for music to be composed. He was by almost any definition a genius. He composed music that was more expressive... His music was also bigger and badder... You could say that he was like the Metallica of classical music but his stuff is very gentle and heartfelt at times. His music also changes with years of his life... Another good example is that before Beethoven most classical composers made music for the crowd... But with Beethoven you got the sense you were hearing part of his story, his memories... Very special guy... He was a composer who went deaf and still composed by hearing vibrations through the piano... Beethoven did the impossible and more...
