% Tile Wves of Beethoven.
There is a prevalent,, idea that no
man can be a great poet or a great
musician without having been in love.
As most men have a preference some
time in the course of their lives, there
does not appear to be, any reason why
these should form an exception to the1
rule. The question whether Beetho?
ven was -ever in love, has, it seems,
been warmly disputed by his biogra?
phers. Baron Ernoay seems to have
set, the question at rest in a recent
article, published in the Revue Con?
temporaine, that is, so far as assertion
g>es, and if he has not been misled by
r. Wegfeler.
His first love, lt seems, wis Jean?
nette d' Honrath, of Cologne. The
young lady is described as fair, of an
affectionate character and endearing
manners. She used occasionally to
come to Bonn to visit a family there
to whom Beethoven was known, and
this led to his forming an attachment
to her.,
Unfortunately for his peace of mind,
the Jady no ' sooner received the ad?
dresses of a captain in the Austrian
service than she discarded her mu?
sical admirer; and yet he was not a man
altogether unworthy of being regard?
ed with favor by a lady from a merely
Shysical point of view in his younger
ays. He had not then the stern, un?
attractive- expression of countenance
which characterizes the portraits taken
.of him in middle age. Seyfried, who
knew him well in his youth, says he
was then of the middle height, broad
shouldered and robust-a very model
of strength. * .
Add to this that he*had a keen, pe?
netrating eye, and a characteristic
physiognomy, and we heve the picture
of a man who might reasonably ex?
pect that the course of true love would
ran smoothly in his case. But those
who remember-and who does not
the pathetic sonata, "Absence and Re?
turn," would be surprised rather than
? otherwise to hear that he had escaped
the ordeal which has purified so many
geniuses-that of loving well, but not
wisely. In point of fact, it appears
that this sonata is connected with a
love passage in his life, which is re?
ferred to in the follojring letter, writ?
ten by him to Dr. Wegeler. In this
letter he refers, in a very*de?pondent
tone, to the state of his hearing,
which, in spite of all the remedies he
had tried, was getting worse; and he
was then about to seek new doctors.
After describing how hard he was
working, even grudging the time he
was obliged to devote to sleep, to
complete work that should do him
honor, he says:
"For the last two years I have
Kved a solitary life. I dare say I am
considered -a misanthrope, and yet I
lam not anything of the kind. A met?
amorphosis has been worked in me by
a dear and most ravishing girl, whom
I love and who' loves me. I am in?
debted to her for many happy mo?
ments during these two years, and for
the first time in my life I feel that
marriage could make me perfectly
happy. Unfortunately our social po?
sition is not the same * * * and
in my situation ? reaUy could not
marry * * * I shall have much to
go through before that can be."
Some 'passages are evidently sup?
pressed in this letter; but we can
?gather from it that his life was. embit?
tered by his malady, and the obstacle
which the aristocratic prejudices of
the Austrians placed in the way of his
marriage, for the lady on whom he
had placed his affections was a count?
ess. To this circumstance perhaps,
quite as much as to any democratic
convictions, may be attributed the
"onslaughts he uttered so frequently
against social distinctions.
; This passion, which seems td hare
been tho first experienced by Beetho?
ven after he had reached manhood, -
ended badly for him. The lady ab?
ruptly broke off the connection with
him in order to marry a ruined count
-and, to complete the measure of his
humiliation,, a count? who was by pro?
fession a musical composer, ? com-?
poser of dance music, who sirbse
auently got a ballet of his placed upon
ie stage at Paris, where it was over?
whelmed by the condemnation of the
press; and as the scene of this ballet
was laid in America, one of the critics
remarked that the music was not only
of the new world but of the. other
would.
The effect of this deception on.
Beethoven was most disastrous; it
smote him doubly hard, by wounding
bis pride, as a man and an artist. He
uttered no complaints; but it was easy
to see that he desired death rather
than life. One of his greatest ad?
mirers, wno felt for him the purest
and warmest friendship, thought to
relieve his mind by inducing him to
take up his residence at a country
house belonging to her, not far from
.'Vienna. Here he wandered about tha
park, but instead of finding peace, he
became more and more despondent.
The rustling of the leaves, the noise
of the birds, repeated his. misfortune
continually, until, as he said at a later
period of his life, he began to feel that
he was abandoned, by God as well as by
the woman he had loved so profoundr
ly" This disappointment was near
ending fatally. One evening he did
not return to the house as usual, and
it was supposed that he had suddenly
set out for Vienna, consequently no
alarm was excited by his non-appear?
ance. Three days afterwards he was
discovered bv a friend, lying at thc foot
of a tree in the most "distant part of the
park, nearly dead from want of 'food.
The earnest solicitation of his friends
induced him to abstain from any
similar attempt to end his pain in
this way, and it was not until many
years afterwards that it became known
he had ever dorie so. Not very long
afterwards he had the opportunity of
nobly avenging the* deceit that had
been practiced upon him. The dis?
tress of the lady he had loved became
so great that she. actually wrote to
Beethoven to tell him of their con?
dition and to ask Bim for assistance.
He did not comply ' with her request
openly, but played the part of tho
Good Samaritan in secret, for ho got
a loan of five hundred floorings, on the
security of his future compositions,
and remitted it to her by a sure hand,
without suffering her to know tho
name of her benefactor. It was not
until twenty years afterward that
Beethoven related the affair to. a most
intimate friend named Schindler, to
whom the husband of the lady had
spoken of him in very uncompliment?
ary terms. His magnificent composi?
tions render him immortal; but we
can now see that honor and fame will
not keep the skeleton out of a man's
closet.
