Beethoven: A Life in Nine Pieces

Professor Laura Tunbridge

Beethoven's life remains shrouded in myths, and the image persists of him as an eccentric genius shaking his fist at heaven. This book cuts through the noise in a refreshing way. Each chapter focuses on a period of his life, a piece of music and a revealing theme, from family to friends, from heroism to liberty. It's a winning combination of rich biographical detail, insight into the music and surprising new angles, all of which can transform how you listen to his works. This tour de force – published for the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth – provides a fresh overview and a wealth of material that has never been revealed to the wider public before.
