    We tend to think of it as tragic yet ironically his deafness, after initial despair, simply spurred him on with greater determination. And in some ways his deafness allowed him to focus more completely on his composing. It gave him a unique perspective. He could imagine in his "minds ear" what his compositions would sound like.

    Beethoven is actually one musical artist whom I don't want to hear the entire output of anytime soon. Not because I don't like it- the opposite. Because I know that if I hear it all, there will be nothing of his left to look forward to hearing! I like to have a sense of anticipation. Maybe someday if I reach 99 I might decide to finally listen to those Beethoven pieces I never got round to listening to, but personally I don't want to eat all the musical cookies in the jar at once.

    Ludwig Von Beethoven would have fitted in quite comfortable in the 1970s DEEP PURPLE plus Ritchie use to play a full-on rock band version of Beethoven's 9th Symphony when he was in RAINBOW during the 1981-84 era and also during the re-formed 1980s DEEP PURPLE.

    A Jon Lord quote from 1973-

    "Deep Purple are as valid as anything Beethoven ever did".
    Maybe old Ludwig could have been Jon Lord's Hammond organ tech??. :hm:

    Not only did he compose his masterpieces when he was virtually deaf but he conducted his new Symphonies to the orchestra. Now that is nearly like driving a car blindfolded.
