Eso fue exactamente lo que pasó con uno de los más importantes compositores de todos los tiempos, Ludwig Van Beethoven, quien nació en Bonn, Alemania en 1770, y murió en Viena, Austria en 1827.

He was very sad and depressed by the death of a German prince, who was his benefactor and as a second father to him. Beethoven atravezaba uno de esos sombríos momentos y estaba muy triste y deprimido por la muerte de un príncipe alemán, quien era su benefactor y era, a la vez, como un segundo padre para él.

Siempre llevaba consigo un cuaderno, en donde la gente podía escribirle y comunicarse con él, pero no tenían paciencia para eso, ni él para leer sus labios.
  • 10. Tower Bridge London Noticing that nobody understood and wanted to help him, Beethoven withdrew into himself and avoided people. Therefore he earned the fame of being a misanthrope. For all these reasons the composer fell into deep depression. He even prepared his will, saying that maybe it was better for him to commit suicide. Dándose cuenta que nadie le entendía ni quería ayudarle, Beethoven se encerró en sí mismo, evitando a la gente. De ahí se ganó la fama de ser un misántropo.

  • 11. Parliament Brussels But as no child of God is forgotten, the helping hand Beethoven needed came through a blind young woman who lived in the same boarding house where he had moved to, and who one night told him, shouting at his ears: “ I would give everything to see the moonlight.” Pero, como no hay niño que por Dios que sea olvidado, la mano salvadora que Beethoven necesitaba vino a través de una joven mujer ciega, que vivía en el mismo edificio que él, y que una noche le dijo, gritando a sus oídos: “ Daría cualquier cosa por ver la luz de la luna”

  • 16. St. Peter’s Square Vatican Some music scholars say that the notes that repeat themselves, insistently, in the main theme of the 1º movement of the Sonata, might be the syllables of the words “Warum? Warum”? (Why? Why?) or another word in German of similar meaning. Algunos estudiosos de la música dicen que las notas que se repiten insistentemente, en el tema central del primer movimiento de la sonata, podrían ser las sílabas de la palabra “Warum? Warum?” (¿por qué... ¿por qué?...) o alguna otra palabra alemana de similar significado.
  • 17. Coliseum Rome Years after having overcome his sorrow, suffering and pain, came the incomparable “Ode to Joy” from his “Ninth Symphony”, Beethoven’s magnum opus , which crowned the life work of this remarkable composer. He conducted the first performance himself in 1824, and by then being totally deaf, failed to hear the applause. Años después de superar su angustia, su tristeza y su dolor, vino la incomparable “ Oda de la Alegría” de la Novena Sinfonía, su obra magna: Con ello se coronaba la obra de un extraordinario compositor. Beethoven dirigió personalmente el estreno de la Novena Sinfonía, en 1824, estando ya completamente sordo... Pero pudo escuchar el aplauso de un público emocionado.
  • 18. St. Mark’s Square Venice One of the soloists gently turned him around, to see the hall full of a wildly cheering, applauding, and hat-waving audience . It is said the “Ode to Joy” expresses Beethoven’s gratitude to life and to God, for not having committed suicide. Uno de los músicos de la orquesta, gentilmente giró a Beethoven para que pudiera ver la sala y a los asistentes, llenos de emoción y alegría; dando eufóricos aplausos y ondeando sus sombreros.
