Ludwig van Beethoven was one of the most prolific composers of his time, and his music remains relevant today. Most of us are familiar with those moving musical works from Für Elise and Moonlight Sonata to his symphonies, which are nine in number and the basis for many a religious hymn. As with any form of creative expression there are detractors from his genius, but whoever listens to the music, whether he likes it or not, would agree that it was written with an abounding passion. And it would seem that Beethoven’s zeal was not confined to musical composition. He is also known in a lesser capacity as a writer of love letters.
