The great composer’s romantic life was much less successful. He gave piano lessons to many of noble birth. In 1801 he dedicated the moonlight sonata to one of those aristocratic pupils who he loved. She was Countess Giulietta Gicciardi; unfortunately she is not out of my station. Beethoven wrote. At this time it is impossible for me to marry. Giulietta had a cousin, Josephine Von Brunsvik and her relationship with Beethoven intensified when she become a widow in 1804.

We are never quite sure what Josephine's side of this is. But Beethoven's side it was "this was a real true love affair" on his part. And it is 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 of 1804 perhaps to 1807 or 1808. This is a relationship that is just full of importance for Beethoven. In fact, he says "you are my return to life from my crisis of deafness and I'm going to improve myself worthy of you, I'm going to compose of compositions." So there is tremendous blossoming 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 places very long. There are 30 or 40 different places he lived in Vienna. Because he set enthusiastic stuff with him and of course things might disappeared or get damaged.

There is one case in 1806 where he stayed the summer with Prince Lichnowsky, where out in Silesia. And Beethoven then had a quarrel with Lichnowsky and left in hurry went straight back to Vienna in middle storm and causes so penetrated his trunk and all music got damaged. And so the autographed score of the p sonata is still got damn stained. But there's rather useful because you can tell which sketches have been written before the storm which one after the storm. So it tells us the date of these sketches.

He spent 10 years on and off at house owners of the Pascolati House, H Pascolati, the landlord, kept the flat underneath Beethoven's empty he could make many notices he liked. One of the first pieces he composer here was the violin concerto ID.

If you think this is a kind of work. It must been a party hard work for people moving this kind of furniture as piano. The Beethoven museum in the flat next door give no hint of the squalor in which Beethoven chose to live.

Picture to yourself the dirtiest most disorder place imaginable, blotches of moisture. Beethoven's music once strewn about in every corner. He had fragment of a cold snack. He seldom picks up everything with his hand without dropping or breaking it. On several occasions he upset his ink quill into the piano under the piano and I do not exaggerate it. An unimpaired pot de la vies beside a small warm. No furniture was safe from in. All was overturned dirty and destroyed.
Maybe, I'm better than I give myself credit for.
