What made Beethoven such a game-changer? Influenced by Mozart but frustrated by Haydn's late successes, his career spanned Enlightenment, Revolution, and Romanticism, and his final decade overlapped the age of Rossini and Schubert. We will examine Beethoven's music and impact in a volatile era of political and philosophical transformations. No score-reading required.
