Beethoven - His Life and Music

Life and Music

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.



Beethoven bestrides the history of music like no other. Without him it would have been a very different story. In this biographical portrait, words combine with large swathes of music to reveal a titanic personality, both vulnerable and belligerent, comic and tragic, and above all heroic, as he comes to grips with perhaps the greatest disability a musician can suffer. No man’s music is more universal; few men’s lives are more inspiring. Yet almost every work was the result of passionate struggle. In every sense but one – his modest height – he was a giant.

This biography comes with 2½ hours of music by Beethoven. Audio samples are contained in the text: just touch to play them while you read!
