Ludwig van Beethoven, the brilliant German composer and pianist, was born in Bonn on 16 December 1770. The Vatican wishes to remember the German artist on the 250th anniversary of his birth with a postage stamp issue consisting of a mini sheet of 4 values, a design by Chiara Principe. The stamp features a close-up of the musician, freely inspired from a bronze statue created by the German sculptor Caspar von Zumbusch and located in Beethovenplatz, Vienna. He stands out against the background of a starry sky illuminated by the full moon, a clear reference to the famous “Moonlight Sonata” which the staves in the background represent. The handwritten signature of the famous composer completes the drawing. The musical CD created for the occasion offers some of the most famous Beethovian compositions, considered one of the greatest masterpieces of Western symphonic music.
