Beethoven’s compositions typically explore universal themes such as love, heroism, despair, and exultation. His music is particularly relevant for the solace it offers in these very turbulent times. Beethoven’s life and music have great historical significance, as he lived during a time of political and social upheaval in Europe, much like what we are experiencing today. His personal struggles, including his battle with deafness, add depth to his story, making his music even more powerful and inspiring.
