Moonlight Sonata – Beethoven and the Blind Girl
“I would give everything to see the moonlight.”
The touching fable of Beethoven meeting a Blind Girl who inspired him to write the Moonlight Sonata.
Who in life has not had moments of extreme pain?
Who has never felt, at some moment, the desire to give up?
Who has not yet felt lonely, extremely lonely, and had the sense of having lost all hope?
Not even famous, rich, important people are exempt from having their moments of solitude and deep bitterness.
This was what happened to one of the most remarkable composers of all time, Ludwig Van Beethoven, who was born in 1770, in Bonn, Germany, and died in Vienna, Austria, in 1827.
