Moonlight Sonata - a portrait


Many a time I have walked the hills where Beethoven walked for inspiration and a reprieve from his thoughts. As his hearing loss became progressively worse, he had to move further and further out from the city to the country, because he could no longer hear how loud he was, disturbing his neighbours. The frustration of his deafness drove him to near suicide, yet he persevered and continued to write music even when completely deaf.
