Abstract:

"Mr. Beethoven thinks that he can change the world with his music," Christoph's uncle tells him. Indeed, even though the composer is going deaf, he pushes himself tirelessly and works on his music -- loudly -- all hours of the night and day. He's far from the ideal boarder, as far as Christoph is concerned. Since his father's death, however, Christoph's family had no choice but to take on a lodger. As boarders go, Beethoven is a problem for everyone. But the composer's unusual ways capture the boy's curiosity. As he tries harder to figure out this eccentric genius, Christoph's resentment turns to understanding and then friendship. He discovers that Beethoven is "hearing beautiful music in his head" even though he is going deaf. It is at the premier of the famous Ninth Symphony that Christoph and his family come to understand the genius of this great composer and the beauty of his music. - Publisher.

At first, ten-year-old Christoph resents the eccentric boarder who enters his home, but slowly he comes to understand the torment of Ludwig van Beethoven's deafness, and appreciate his genius and the beauty of his music.
