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 these aristocratic pupils he loved
Her name was Countess Julieta Giciaritti. “Unfortunately, she is not of my station” Beethoven wrote. “And this time it is impossible for me to marry”.
Julieta had a cousin, Josephena Broomsvic ,and her relationship with Beethoven intensified when she became a widow in 1804.

“We’re never quite sure what Josephena cited what this is ,but Beethoven cited was this was a real true love affair on his part. And it’s the only one that we absolutely know what happened,we know who it is. And there were 13 love letters from Beethoven to Josehpens over the years in 1804 perhaps 1807 or 1808. This is a relationship that is just full of importance for Beethoven,like he says “You are my return to life from my crisis and my deafness. And I’m gonna prove myself the work with you, I’m gonna compose all these compositions.” So there’s tremendous blossom 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 for very long , there were 30 or 40 different places he lived in Vienna. Because he constantly moves and takes all the stuff with him, things might get disappeared or damaged. There’s one occasion 1806 when he stayed the summer with Prince Lichnosky way out in Silesia. And Beethoven then had a quarrel with Lichnosky, left in a hurry when straight back to Vienna in the middle of a storm . Because the storm penetrated his trunk, all his music got damaged. So the autographed score The Passionate Sonata is still got damn stained.That’s rather used. But you can tell which sketch was written before the storm, which was after the storm. So it tells the date of the sketches.”

He spent 10 years on and off at a house learner’s Casperatti House. Heir Casperatti, the landlord ,kept the flat underneath Beethoven’s empty .So he could make as much noise as he liked. One of the first pieces he composed here was The Violin Concerto in D.
“Er.,,,,If you think this is hard work, it must be pretty hard work for people moving his furniture like piano”
The Beethoven Museum in the flat next door gives no hint of squalor in which Beethoven chose to live.
“Picture to yourself, the dirtiest, most disorderly place imaginable. Blotches of moisture …” “. in …extreme about in every corner . Here fragments of cold snack .”
“He seldom picked up anything with his hand without dropping or breaking it. On several occasions, he offset the ink quill in into the piano”
“..under the piano…and I do not exaggerate , an unemptied pots in the weed besides the..”
“No furniture was safe from him. All were overturned,dirty or destroyed”
