"Since the first volume in 1992, Beethoven Forum has lived up to its name. Vols. 5 and 6 continue this reputation, opening up a forum for diverse opinions and approaches that resemble a kind of interfaith dialogue with Beethoven as God. The contributions are mainly sound and elegantly presented." --Music and Letters, May 1999
