"Paul Reid's Beethoven Song Companion reveals not only Beethoven's indispensable achievements in Lieder, but also the broad range of his unrealised ambitions in the genre. In sketching settings of many poems that he did not bring to musical completion (all of them documented here), the great composer emerges as a more fastidious song enthusiast than anyone has hitherto realised. With the appearance of this book, a worthy 'prequel' to the Schubert Song Companion by Reid's mentor, the late John Reed, there is no longer any excuse to underestimate Beethoven's ability to write for the voice, and his crucial place in the history of song."
