Biography: Beethoven: The Sound and the Fury Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

His nine symphonies and countless smaller works made him a giant in his day and a legend for all time. But his was a classic creative soul, tortured in spite of his success.

Ludwig Van Beethoven is undeniably one of the greatest musical geniuses who ever lived. He was also a mountain of contradictions whose towering talent allowed him license few others enjoyed. He scorned the standards of society and spent a good portion of his fortune in court in a failed attempt to prove he had a noble heritage. Through extensive interviews with Beethoven scholars, including violinist Isaac Stern and conductor Kurt Masur, BIOGRAPHY® explores the life, work and legacy of this musical giant. Find out how he kept composing despite being totally deaf by the age of 40. Explore the failures in love and conflicts with his patrons and fans that colored much of his life. And, of course, hear extended performances of his greatest works from some of the world's most acclaimed orchestras.

This is an extraordinary, illuminating look at one of the greatest musicians of all time, whose works will be played and celebrated forever.
