Beethoven, Can You Hear?

Teresa Poucher


  Ludwig Van Beethoven learned to play music at a very young age.  At his first recital, he was only six years old.  He became an amazing violinist, pianist, and composer.  One of his best-known pieces of music is his Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Opus 67, also known simply as “Beethoven’s Fifth Sympathy” (see link below).He was already going deaf when he composed it.  


Beethoven’s childhood was extremely rough. You can read about him on Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphonies, Deafness & Race – Biography.


  So how did Beethoven compose music when he was close to total hearing loss?  I believe he knew music so well he could hear it in his mind.  Much like we can hear a loved one’s voice or laughter even after they have passed from this life. 


  The Lord is still speaking to us today.  May we become so familiar with His voice that we can hear it amid chaos, confusion, and even calamity.  


  Is your hearing impaired?  Get your Bible, and read awhile.  Play it on your phone, and listen to some preaching.  


He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.” (Revelation 2:11)


Can you still hear His voice?
