Description

Contained within this book is a collection of letters written by or to Beethoven. Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827) was a German composer and pianist. Beethoven’s musical prowess was recognised from an early age, and he soon became famous as a virtuoso pianist and composer. However, after having gone almost completely deaf by 1814, Beethoven ceased public performances and appearances entirely. One of the most celebrated composers in Western history, Beethoven’s music remains amongst the most commonly-performed classical music around the world. This volume offers a unique insight into the life and mind of this incredible composer and will appeal to those with an interest in classical music. Contents include: “Life’s Joys and Sorrows 1783 to 1815”, “Life’s Mission 1815 to 1822”, and “Life’s Troubles and Close 1823 to 1827”. Read & Co. Books is publishing this brand new collection of letters now complete with the essay “Beethoven as a Letter Writer” by Walter R. Spalding.
