提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
The great composer's romantic life was much less successful. He gave piano lessons to many women of noble birth. In 1801 he dedicated the Moonlight Sonata to one of his aristocratic pupils who he loved. Her name was Countess Giulietta Guicciardi.
"Unfortunately she is not my station!" Beethoven wrote, "and at this time, it is impossible for me to marry."
Giulietta had a cousin Josephine von Brunsvik, eand her relationship with Beethoven intensified when she became a widow in 1804.

We never quite sure what Josephine side of this is .but Beethoven side of this was, this was a true love affair on his part. And it's the only one that we absolutely know happened and we know who it is, and there are 13 love letters that Beethoven wrote to Josephine over the years from 1804 perhaps to 1807 or 1808.
This is the relationship that is, just full of importance for Beethoven in fact he says:” You are my return to life from my crisis of my deafness, and I am going to prove myself worthy of you, I am going to compose all these compositions!" So there is tremendous blast being in Beethoven's composition.

Beethoven's productivity was helped by the extraordinary discipline of his working routine. In contrast his personal life was chaotic and unsettled.

He never stayed in one place very long, there were 30 or 40 different places he lived in Vienna, he also simultaneously take all the stuff with him, and of course, things might disappear or be damaged. There is one occasion in 1824 where he stayed the summer with Prince Lichnowsky where are out in Silesia. And Beethoven then had a quarrel with Lichnowsky, left in a hurry, and, went straight back to Vienna in the middle of a storm. And of course storm penetrated his trunk and all his music got damaged. So the autography score, the Pathétique sonata is still got damp stained.

You find that's all useful because you can tell which sketch be written before the storm which one is after the storm, so it tells us the date of the sketches.

He spend 10 years on and off at the house learners of the Pascolati'st House.Ph Pascolati'st landlord kept the flat underneath Beethoven's empty, so he could make as much noises as he liked. One of the pieces he composed here was the Violin Concerto in deed.

Er, if you think this is hard work, it must be pretty hard work for people moving Beethoven's furniture as piano.

The Beethoven Museum in the flat next door gives no hint of the squalor in which Beethoven chose to live.

Picture to yourself the dirtiest, most disorderly place imaginable. Blotches of moisture...

Auctioned music were streamed about in every corner, here, the fragments of codes snack...

He seldom picked up anything with his hands without dropping and breaking it. On several occasions he upseted his ink quill into the piano.

Under the piano, and I do not exaggerate. An exempted pot...
No furniture was safe from him, all were overturned, dirtied and destroyed.
