Out of all musical artists known today Ludwig Van Beethoven is right at the top of popularity and stardom Though his life didnt start this way as did Mozarts Beethoven increased in knowledge and musical ablility as he was taught by some of the best composers of his time Beethovens child life was not a very happy one in many circumstances His father Johann even though being a singer in the Electoral Chapel in Bonn Germany where Beethoven was born had a negative effect on Beethovens life because of his drunkenness Johann who learned of Mozarts child stardom pressed young Beethoven to practice relentlessly at the piano hoping to make a few dollars This did not to turn out to be such as a success as he wished As Beethoven grew older his mother who was his only source of compassion died and he left his father to go study with one of the most proclaimed composers of the time Hayden Beethoven would go on to study with many other teachers and finally established his own musical personality which is shown throughout his musicBeethovens first symphony written in 1800 just as his second symphony resembles directly to Hayden and Mozarts classical styles Symphony No 1 in C Major which is dedicated to the Baron van Swieten commences with a very short introductory movement Adagio molto Only consisting of twelve bars merely serves as a prelude to the work This leads into the Allegro which princliple subject is six bars The leading theme is three four-bar phrases in the strings artfully protracted by two bars of wind instruments The second movement includes the Andante cantabile con moto which contains an accompanamiant for kettle drums piano which appears nowadays as something very ordinary This movement evolves full of charm with a theme of grace into the Menuetto e Trio which is the third movement The Minuet and Trio form the most original portion of the work
