About 'Adagio from Op.31 No.1'
||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.|
The sonata Op.31 no.1 was written in 1802; an important year in the composer's life and shortly before the crisis of the "Heiligenstadt Testament,".
