Not really, he didn't turn completely deaf until the last years of his life, and by then he had already written most of his famous stuff.

Plus, I heard he was almost blind. How the heck do you write a symphony when you can't see the piece of paper you're writing on?

I think if the person who voted no should come forward and if they don't the vote should be deleted, we did this with hendrix and it would be terribly biased and unfair to not to it with good old Ludwig.

Why write it at all, the really practiced musicians can just hear it in their own mind.

Are you aware that you can see the identity of the voters by clicking on the number of votes?

The no-voter is Gavin B.
