“Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.”
– Ludwig van Beethoven

L Nichols ruminates on the beauty and complexity of Beethoven’s compositions. Nichols shares his personal musical journey, including his introduction to classical music, his exploration of varied genres, and ultimately his return to Beethoven.

L. Nichols lives in New York’s Hudson Valley region with his wife and two kids. L has played the piano since he was a small child and has been diligently trying to learn Beethoven’s Waldstein Sonata for the past two years. L is the author of FLOCKS, a graphic memoir about growing up queer in the evangelical south and finding your way in life. L also enjoys hiking, biking, cooking, and gardening.

Ludwig van Beethoven, (17 December 1770 – 26 March 1827) was a German composer and pianist. He was a crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in music and remains one of the most recognized and influential composers of all time. His life was troubled by his encroaching loss of hearing and chronic abdominal pain since his twenties. He died at the age of 56 during a thunderstorm.
