  • Ludwig van Beethoven

    Known as the Shakespeare of Music, Ludwig Van Beethoven was one of the greatest composers the world has ever had. He was one among the pioneers of instrumental music in European culture, and played a crucial role in the development of tonal music. Though acquired deafness restricted him from actively involving in social life, it never trammelled his creativity. During the premiere of his final masterpiece, ˜Ninth Symphony', Beethoven had to turn around to view the clapping of the audience as he had become totally deaf by then. However, despite his loss of hearing, he grew as a colossus of music, whose fame continues to be unbeaten even now. Influenced greatly by Mozart and Haydn, he enriched his style with the emotional power of romanticism. The intricacy and vastness of his works went much beyond the age, baffled his contemporaries and continues to mystify the professionals and later audiences. His operas, symphonies and sonatas are still sung and performed all over the world.

  • Johann Sebastian Bach

    Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer, born in late seventeen century into a reputed musical family at Eisenach, Germany. He had his early musical training under his father and uncle. He lost both his parents at a young age following which his eldest brother took him into his household and began tutoring him. At fifteen, he was sent to Michaelis monastery at Lüneburg, where he completed his training. Bach began his career as a violinist in Weimar and then shifted to Arstadt as an organist. From there, he went to Mühlhausen and then again to the Court of Weimar, and subsequently to Köthen before settling at Leipzig. However, in most places, his employers were unsympathetic to his aspirations or talent and therefore he did not get either money or fame in his lifetime. His music was rediscovered about fifty years after his death; by then many of his creations had been lost. Today he is considered as one of the greatest composers of all time.
