Beethoven is one of the most important and well-known classical musicians in the world. But his identity has been falsified all these years.
He has always appeared in prophecy as a white-haired man with blonde hair all over the world.
He was called “Mulatto”, or “Black Spaniard”. But why? According to historian Gabriel Scott his father was German and his mother a “Moor”
At the time, the term “Moors” was used to refer to a group of Muslim Northern Africans. In his close company, he was known as Black Man. In the found documents there is evidence that they say that he had brown skin, black Frizzy wooly hair and a thick wide nose, short neck.
According to the historian, the pressure of society also made Beethoven often put white powder on his face when he went out in public. He allegedly also used body doubles for portraits, and “euro-centric” historians, hiding the truth of his genetic heritage.
His story is truly inspiring. At the age of 21, he went from Germany to Italy to study piano and composition. There he rose to fame as a virtuoso pianist. At that time his hearing began to decrease and he became almost deaf.
This did not stop his career. For 15 years he composed the most beautiful works ever made in the history of classical music. All in all, his compositions include nine symphonies, about a dozen pieces of “occasional” music, seven concerts, as well as four shorter works that include soloists accompanied by an orchestra. His only opera was Fidelio.
But what is more important is that this genius of music that everyone knows as white was really …. a man with black skin.
