Incorporating Ludwig van Beethoven’s best known works, Google on Thursday celebrated the 245th anniversary of the maestro’s baptism with an interactive doodle.

The puzzle, aimed at testing one’s knowledge of Beethoven, shows the composer getting delayed on his way to the concert hall and the only way he will reach is by our help.

The interactive doodle incorporated some of Beethoven’s signature melodies including Fifth Symphony and Ode To Joy. Beethoven’s hearing was almost gone by the time he was in his 30s and in 1811 he had given up on conducting in public but continued to compose.

Although he had lost much of his hearing by the last decade of his life, his most cherished works are said to have been composed during that period.
