    Was it in his genetics or was it a disease also?

    Ludwig van Beethoven was a deaf German composer and the predominant musical figure in the transitional period between the Classical and Romantic eras.

    I believe it was a disease. He was completely deaf by the age of about... I believe 45...

    The exact cause of Beethoven's deafness is unknown, theories have ranged from syphilis to the composer's habit of dunking his head in cold water whenever he was tired, among many others. It isn't known precisely when he went completely deaf.

    He could hear most of his help, but by the age of about 45, he was completely deaf.
