The mad genius that Beethoven was, he was known to dip his head in cold water before composing. Not only that, he would pour water over his hands when he practiced and he would keep pouring until his clothes were wet.

The extent of this odd habit was so much that water would often leak onto the ceiling of the room below his, much to the discomfort of his hosts or neighbours. Considering the fact that Beethoven lived in Austria, it's a miracle he didn't catch pneumonia.

Beethoven thought he was younger than he was!

For many years, Beethoven believed he was born in 1772, not 1770.

Why?

His father Johann van Beethoven, who was responsible for his piano learning as a child, told others his son was actually two years younger in order to make him seem like more of a child prodigy than he was. Some say it was to draw comparisons to Mozart, who himself was somewhat of a child prodigy.

A piano prodigy who made his professional debut at age 12, Peter Serkin seemed destined from childhood to carry on the legacy of his father, Rudolf Serkin, one of the 20th century’s most revered pianists.

A piano prodigy who made his professional debut at age 12, Peter Serkin seemed destined from childhood to carry on the legacy of his father, Rudolf Serkin, one of the 20th century’s most revered pianists.

But while the elder Serkin was celebrated for breathing new life into Beethoven and other old masters, his son became known for championing the work of 20th-century composers such as Oliver Knussen, Toru Takemitsu, Stefan Wolpe and his childhood friend Peter Lieberson, even as he worked to reveal rich new textures in the classical repertoire so cherished by his father.

Serkin, who has died of pancreatic cancer aged 72, played everything from Bach to Berio and Mozart to Messiaen, sometimes using a 19th-century fortepiano to perform period works.

Zsuzsanna Foldi has been deaf all her life. Still, with her hands placed on the double bass, sitting among musicians in Budapest's Danubia orchestra, she can enjoy and literally feel Beethoven's famous Fifth Symphony.

"When I sat next to the musician who played the bass today, I started crying," she said.

No one is sure of the exact birth date of Ludwig van Beethoven, who was born in Bonn, Germany in December 1770.

He was baptised on 17 December, so he was probably born the day before. His birthplace (pictured) is now the Beethoven-Haus museum.
