December 16.  Beethoven’s 245th Birthday.  Reblog of “The Hearing Loss of Beethoven” by James Vitale

Happy birthday Ludwig.  Here’s my favorite piece. Heaven would be listening to this.

While you’re here, check out James Vitales blog post on Beethoven’s Deafness.

The hearing loss of the famous composer Ludwig van Beethoven was caused by a genetic defect that eroded the bones of his inner ear. Tragic for such an amazing man.
