In what he called the "dry letters of the alphabet," the letters of Beethoven are the principal nonmusical expression of his personality. This collection features 457 of Beethoven's most candid letters dealing with such topics as his deafness, his declining health, other composers and their influence, and his own work. Includes 15 illustrations.

About the Author

The triumphant genius of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827) casts a long shadow over classical music — no other composer of the past two centuries has exercised an influence more profound than his. A product of the classicist generation, he was the first of the Romantics, and his exhilarating works remain undiminished in their powers of enchantment.
