Ludwig van Beethoven (Bonn, Germany, December 16, 1770-Vienna, March 26, 1827), was a German composer, creator, or let's say "hunter", of a large number of great melodies or famous musical pieces, which makes him one of the most influential musicians in history.

Nestled in the late-classical or romantic period, his famous and easily identifiable compositions exceed the number of fingers that a hand has, making him an indisputable genius only at the height of very few in his field, such as Mozart or Francisco Tárrega. Thus, his Fifth Symphony, his Für Elise, his Ninth Symphony (European Anthem), his Moonlight sonata, the Sixth Symphony or Pastoral, and many others leave the subject absolutely closed, making him probably the best composer, or one of the best.
