Hello,

"Ugly as he was, Beethoven easily attracted women. His pupil, Ferdinand Ries, described how, one day, he found Beethoven on a sofa with an unknown young woman.

Ries had come for a lesson. Beethoven waved him to the piano: ‘Play something romantic’. Ries obliged, averting his eyes from the sofa. ‘Something passionate!’ urged Beethoven.

Ries played on, until the woman made off. Beethoven said he had no idea who she was — she had knocked on the door and asked to see him. This happened, apparently, quite often. But his real love life, confined to three or four women, was a disaster."
