BEETHOVEN III

Beethoven’s anxiety about his declining hearing led him to write the famous Heiligenstadt Testament, which in turn inspired Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin to write an overture. Beethoven eventually overcame his anxiety and went on to write even greater works, such as the Eroica Symphony.
