About 'Minuet in G'
||Beethoven, Ludwig van (biography) (sheet music)|
|Born:||15/16 December 1770
|Died:||26 March 1827
|The Artist:||One of the greatest and most radical composers of all time. A tormented genius, who went deaf in later life and never heard his final works. His nine symphones are probably his greatest achievement, each one an unrivalved masterpiece, but he also wrote 5 piano concertos, piano sonatas, string quartets and one opera, Fidelio.|
Originally No 2 of Six Minuets, 1795, probably originally written for orchestra, although only the piano versions survive. After the Moonlight Sonata, and Fur Elise, this is one of Beethoven's most popular pieces.
