(2) Bach J.S.
(3) Richard Strauss
(4) Johannes Brahms

Answer: (1) Beethovan LV.
Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between
the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. Around 1796, by the age of 26, Beethoven began to lose his hearing. He suffered from a severe form of tinnitus, a “ringing” in his ears that made it hard for him to hear music; he also avoided conversation. The cause of Beethoven’s deafness is unknown, but it has variously been attributed to typhus, auto-immune disorders (such as systemic lupus erythematosus), and even his habit of immersing his head in cold water to stay awake.

Beethovan LV.
