Is "I shall hear in Heaven" relevant in any way?

OK, so it's Ludwig van Beethoven, right? Did he consider his deafness a blessing to himself?

Did I once hear that Beethoven thought the pieces of music he wrote in his later years were not particularly good and therefore wasn't too worried that he couldn't hear them?

I don't know if you had, however this is not the case here. After his deafness, Beethoven's music became revolutionary, but I don't think he thought less of it. After all, his Ninth Symphony was completed in this time, and despite his deafness, he still insisted on conducting its first performance.

Let's see if I can wake this one up...

Was his deafness a blessing in that he couldn't hear other composer's works? Did he not think much of (some?) other composer's works?

Was the blessing that his deafness gave him a reason not go to concerts if he didn't want to? That it did away with distractions from outside noise while he was composing?

Let's see if I can wake this one up... thankyou :)

Was his deafness a blessing in that he couldn't hear other composer's works? no Did he not think much of (some?) other composer's works? no

Was the blessing that his deafness gave him a reason not go to concerts if he didn't want to? no That it did away with distractions from outside noise while he was composing? no

Hint: There is some relevent information outside Beethovan and his deafness still to be found

OTRT, hmmm? Was the blessing that his deafness did away with something? That he was less distracted? That he was less likely to be influenced by things he heard?

The relevant other information: does it have to do with where he lived? when he lived? his home life? his social life?

Did his music somehow become "purer" because he couldn't hear what other composers were doing and be influenced by them?

Did he believe that his deafness allowed him to better hear his music in his head? And thus he could write it down better?

Did he believe that his deafness allowed him to better hear his music in his head? i'd like to say yes on that one, very much on the right track, but this is not the case: there is a lot of stuff missing here And thus he could write it down better? no

Did his deafness allow him to sense sound waves and/or pick up vibrations?

Did his deafness allow him use another sense in an effective way for his music?
