Nominated by The Bullet

Ludwig Van Beethoven
Ludwig Van Beethoven (12/17/1770-3/26/1827) was a very influential classical composer who was composing during the 1790's through the 1820's (not including "Piano Concerto no.0" which was composed in the 1780's but released posthumously). He was crucial in the transitional period from classical to romantic music. The composer popularized motifs, pairing choirs with orchestras, and much more. Amazingly, he was deaf when composing some of his most famous works. He has written staples that many beginning musicians learn such as Ode To Joy and Fur Elise. The opening to his fifth symphony is equally as iconic (ba-da-da-dum). The icon was also the first to use tempo markings such as , which is ubiquitous today. In addition to writing great music, he also played piano, and was known for his improvisation skills. His symphonies alone have been recorded over 70 times. His influence includes Schumann, Liszt, Brahms, Chopin, and Schubert as well as rock icons such as The Beatles, Queen, and Nirvana. "Mark that young man; he will make himself a name in the world!"* -Mozart *It is uncertain if Mozart actually said this, but biographer Otto Jahn got it from "good authority." *

BEFORE YOU VOTE NO: If you do not enjoy the music of Beethoven please remember that this also honers the influence an artist has, and Beethoven influenced almost all music, from rap to metal to blues to demoscene. Well, what evidence do we have to believe Beethoven's influence? Who did Beethoven influence? - Yahoo! Answers Musical improvisation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia -----> improvisation is a huge part of Jazz, and most Rock music. Keep that in mind. Also, chances are, if you are voting no, you have not heard much of Beethoven's music, or classical music in general. In this case, you should not vote at all. Plus, there are a few Beethoven pieces I will bet money you know (if you haven't heard the later three pieces posted above... you have probably been living in a cave your whole life.)




Thank you. Thus, I nominate Ludwig Van Beethoven for the MusicBanter hall of fame.

what the- I thought I sent a PM telling NSW to edit out "*name of piece*", because when I was working on the write up, that's where I wanted the video to go...

Sorry if you didn't get that one (or if I accidentally clicked the red "X" instead of the send button), but could you please make that edit?

I'm not sure what I'm going to vote for Beethoven. Yes, he is an incredible and influential musician, but I've never really deeply gotten into him, and I've never really heard him talked about on MB - and it is the MB hall of fame. I've always preferred Mozart. I'll have to think about this.

Bah, definitely!
Although I do prefer Mozart (this guy's a robot), Beethoven definitely is a hall of famer, and I'm glad Classical music is taken into consideration for once.

We'd be alienating a whole section of our posting audience if we just kept being lame popular music junkies and didn't inject just a shred of culture, not to say i am actually cultured, but I respect those who are... so I am voting yes...
