Beethoven was special. He built a musical bridge from the Classical to the Romantic period. Some interesting questions come to my mind which I might or may not answer.
1, What are some things I could not do if I could not hear?
2, When Beethoven was deaf, he used conversation books. People could write their questions and comments on blank pages in these books. Can I just spend one hour using conversation books to communicate with people?
3, Beethoven was inspired by nature and social events, what kind of things can inspire me to do a better performance?
4, Beethoven changed music history, what history am I going to change?
