Beethoven was born and brought up in Bonn. It was there that the first signs of his genius came to light, and where he had his first experience of life.


It was not in Bonn, his native city, but in Vienna, at the time the musical capital of the world, that Beethoven's enormous musical talent began to develop. In Vienna, Beethoven had his best friends and his great masters, and it was Vienna that shaped his personality and his style.
