Now you don't need to think and tell the person sitting beside you - Hey! that sounds very familiar. Doesn't it ? 
And you would have also heard this name- 'Beethoven'
Anyways even if you haven't heard of him i'll tell you about him.

Ludwig Van Beethoven -
Ludwig Van Beethoven was born on 16th of December 1770. His Grandfather Ludwig and his father Johann both were musicians. At the age of 25 he lost his hearing. That did not stop him from composing music but he stopped performing on stage as he could not listen to what he played. He composed many symphonies and tunes during his life time. But the most popular among them was 'Fur Elise'( the video above). He died on march 26 1827 without knowing what magnificent contribution he had made in the field of music.
