Ludwig van Beethoven ( 1770 - 1827 ) was a German composer. His solo piano output includes 32 piano sonatas which are considered by many to be the pinnacle of solo piano repertoire. Of the 32, nearly half of them including the Appassionata, Pathetique, Moonlight and Waldstein are standard classical repertoire. As a chamber music composer he wrote several piano trios and 10 violin sonatas. All 5 of his piano concertos are consistently recorded and his 5th, known as the Emperor concerto probably the most known.
