Beethoven was the grandson of Lodewijk van Beethoven —73 , a musician from Mechelen in the Southern Netherlands now part of Belgium , who at the age of twenty moved to Bonn. Lodewijk the Dutch cognate of German Ludwig was employed as a bass singer at the court of the Elector of Cologne, eventually rising to become Kapellmeister music director. Lodewijk had one son, Johann — , who worked as a tenor in the same musical establishment and gave lessons on piano and violin to supplement his income.

Johann married Maria Magdalena Keverich in ; she was the daughter of Johann Heinrich Keverich, who had been the head chef at the court of the Archbishopric of Trier. Beethoven was born of this marriage in Bonn. There is no authentic record of the date of his birth; however, the registry of his baptism, in a Roman Catholic service at the Parish of St.


Of the seven children born to Johann van Beethoven, only Ludwig, the second-born, and two younger brothers survived infancy. Neefe taught Beethoven composition, and by March had helped him write his first published composition: a set of keyboard variations WoO Beethoven soon began working with Neefe as assistant organist, at first unpaid , and then as a paid employee of the court chapel conducted by the Kapellmeister Andrea Luchesi.

Echoing changes made in Vienna by his brother Joseph, he introduced reforms based on Enlightenment philosophy, with increased support for education and the arts. The teenage Beethoven was almost certainly influenced by these changes.

He may also have been influenced at this time by ideas prominent in freemasonry, as Neefe and others around Beethoven were members of the local chapter of the Order of the Illuminati. The details of their relationship are uncertain, including whether they actually met. Having learned that his mother was ill, Beethoven returned about two weeks after his arrival. His mother died shortly thereafter, and his father lapsed deeper into alcoholism.

As a result, Beethoven became responsible for the care of his two younger brothers, and spent the next five years in Bonn. Beethoven was introduced in these years to several people who became important in his life. Franz Wegeler, a young medical student, introduced him to the von Breuning family one of whose daughters Wegeler eventually married. Beethoven often visited the von Breuning household, where he taught piano to some of the children.

Here he encountered German and classical literature.

Beethoven also came to the attention of Count Ferdinand von Waldstein, who became a lifelong friend and financial supporter. This familiarised Beethoven with a variety of operas, including three by Mozart that were performed at court in this period. From to , Beethoven composed a significant number of works none were published at the time, and most are now listed as works without opus that demonstrated his growing range and maturity.

Musicologists have identified a theme similar to those of his Third Symphony in a set of variations written in Beethoven was probably first introduced to Joseph Haydn in late , when the latter was traveling to London and stopped in Bonn around Christmas time. Mozart had also recently died.

Beethoven did not immediately set out to establish himself as a composer, but rather devoted himself to study and performance. He also studied violin under Ignaz Schuppanzigh. Early in this period, he also began receiving occasional instruction from Antonio Salieri, primarily in Italian vocal composition style; this relationship persisted until at least , and possibly He chose instead to remain in Vienna, continuing his instruction in counterpoint with Johann Albrechtsberger and other teachers.

Although his stipend from the Elector expired, a number of Viennese noblemen had already recognised his ability and offered him financial support, among them Prince Joseph Franz Lobkowitz, Prince Karl Lichnowsky, and Baron Gottfried van Swieten. By , Beethoven had established a reputation as an improviser in the salons of the nobility, often playing the preludes and fugues of J.

His friend Nikolaus Simrock had begun publishing his compositions; the first are believed to be a set of variations WoO By , he had established a reputation in Vienna as a piano virtuoso, but he apparently withheld works from publication so that their publication in would have greater impact. It is uncertain whether this was the First or Second.

Documentary evidence is unclear, and both concertos were in a similar state of near-completion neither was completed or published for several years. Shortly after this performance, he arranged for the publication of the first of his compositions to which he assigned an opus number, the three piano trios, Opus 1.

Beethoven composed his first six string quartets Op. They were published in With premieres of his First and Second Symphonies in and , Beethoven became regarded as one of the most important of a generation of young composers following Haydn and Mozart.
