Beethoven Moves to Vienna

When Joseph Hayden - then Europe's most-famous composer - learned about Beethoven's talents, he invited Ludwig to become his pupil.   The two, however, did not always see eye-to-eye.

The same could be said of Beethoven's romantic interests.  From an early age, the girls with whom he fell in love did not return his feelings.  An early example was Eleonore von Breuning.

Music, however, was always a constant in young Beethoven's life.  A brilliant pianist, and a developing composer, he began to recognize his own considerable talent.  Sometimes, however, he was far from humble about it.
