Happy 250th Birthday …

… to Ludwig van Beethoven who was, probably born on this day in 1770 in Bonn, Germany. I say “probably” because we know he was baptized on 17 Dec 1770 and it was normal in those days for baptisms to take place within 24 hours of the child’s birth because so many babies died within the first few days of life. Beethoven remain’s one of the most admired composers of all time and his music is played, thankfully, both often and everywhere.
