Synopsis

Synopsis

The essential introduction to the world's foremost composer and to the hidden pleasures of classical music.

Beethoven's enduring popularity eclipses all other composers. Over a century and a half has passed since his death, yet his towering accomplishments remain the standard against which all other Western music has been judged. This fascinating and accessible guide to understanding both the man and the musician is also a rewarding exploration of the basics of classical music itself.
