Ludwig van Beethoven (December 17, 1770 – March 26, 1827) was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. His best-known compositions include 9 symphonies, 5 piano concertos, 1 violin concerto, 32 piano sonatas, 16 string quartets, his great Mass the Missa solemnis, and one opera, Fidelio.
The scores to Beethoven's fifth and sixth symphonies have been stolen before their debut. The player helps him out by rehearsing the openings while he recreates the scores.
Beethoven later meets Carmen Sandiego during the final chase.
Beethoven is voiced by Charles Martinet, who is best known for voicing Mario and Luigi from Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers universe.
