Editorial Reviews


"One of the most original monographs on the composer to appear in recent years."--Musical Times

"Open its pages and discover genius....His book is a work of scholarship, in language the layman can understand."--Times Literary Supplement

"Cooper has indeed offered valuable and substantive comments on topics of broad interest to music historians and theorists, as well as to the general reader."--Notes

"[Includes] the best narrative description of Beethoven's sketch materials now available....The book will surely provoke heated response, but is bound to be an important source."--Choice

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
