Ludwig van Beethoven

Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer of classical music and freemason. He was trained by his father Johann van Beethoven. His style was influenced by Joseph Haydn, his teacher of counterpoint in Vienna and Wolfgang Mozart. His patron was Karl Alois Lichnowsky (married to Maria von Tuhn and Hohenstein, also patron of fellow mason Mozart) and Rudolf Habsburg-Lorraine.

His piano teacher was Christian Gottlob Neefe, member of the Bavarian Illuminati. He was also in contact with Illuminati and American Philosophical Society-member Joseph von Sonnenfels (advisor of Maria Theresa Habsburg), to who he dedicated Piano Sonate 15.

From 1800 he started writing his first symphonies and string quartets. Between 1822 and 1824 he composed his choral 9th symphony based on a poem of Friedrich Schiller.

His musical style was part of the Romanticism movement.

His 9th symphony was used as anthem for the European Union.

In The Beatles movie Help! Ringo Starr is trapped in a pit and The Beatles have to sing the 9th symphony to get him out (Revelation 911).

In Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange with Malcolm McDowell as Alex DeLarge has an obsession with Beethoven and his 9th symphony.

The name of his opera Fidelio is the password Tom Cruise uses in Eyes Wide Shut.

Gary Oldman played Beethoven in Immortal Beloved (1994) with Isabella Rosselini and Barry Humphries. Ed Harris played Beethoven in Copying Beethoven (2006) with Diane Kruger.
