Born on December 17, 1770, Beethoven was a legendary composer and pianist with a remarkable contribution to classical western music. After composing his first work at the tender age of 13, he attained formal musical education in Vienna and wrote the Opus 1 piano trio in 1795.

Beethoven and the 9 symphonies are regarded as liquid milestones of pianism that have flourished through the narratives of musical world to melt hearts and soothe wounds with jaw-dropping, soul-stirring and heart-wrenching masterpieces.

A feather on the waves, a kite in the sky, or a glittering haze of candles in the lamp—there are multiple ways to match the strings of metaphors with piano gems.
