Product description

Review

Suchet's achievement is masterly, bringing Beethoven and the Vienna of his day convincingly to life (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

The heart-shaking story of genius and passionate loneliness is brilliantly researched and lovingly told (MAIL ON SUNDAY)

A finer piece of literature than the first book ... this is not for academics but for you and me and anyone moved by Beethoven's music, and will probably do more to further understanding of the composer than any professional paper (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

The overall effect is convincing. Beethoven's music is our soul, and here is a readable and sensitive account of how this music came about. (TLS)

Beethoven's raison d'etre- his compositions- come to life thanks to Suchet's passionate descriptons the first performances of some of Ludwig's great works. Ideally read while listening to some of the symphonies. (BELFAST TELEGAPH)

Book Description

* Second volume of magnificent fictional biography of Ludvig van Beethoven, arguably the greatest composer of all time.
