Ludwig van Beethoven will grow to become one of the most influential composers in a few short years, but in his early days, he was just a commoner trying to survive his days with an alcoholic father and a world that just hasn't discovered his greatness yet.

Ludwig van Beethoven is rising in the charts; gaining some praise and attention from those he'd seek to learn from (for better or worse), Beethoven's life strives in the face of the war in France, despite his debilitating deafness making itself all-too-apparent.
