Any Beethoven fans here? The reason I ask this is because I personally do Not like Beethoven at all. Yet he is EXTREMELY popular-AFAIK he's the most popular (western classical)composer in the world. What is it about his music that has such mas appeal??? :?

What of his have you listened to? Do you like other composers? I love Beethoven, especially symphonies 5, 7, 8, and 9. His music has such appeal because it's just that good. It's powerful, deep, passionate, and fun.

Fur Elise I can play it.
Moonlight Sonata I can play that
Pathetiqui
Eroica

I guess it's a matter of taste.
