Book Description:

Serials devoted to Beethoven are either published intermittently or are now defunct; should Beethoven Forum prosper, it would be the only ongoing source of serious Beethoven scholarship in the world. Although written for musicians, it will appeal to wider audiences, especially in historically oriented material (e.g., the effects of economic inflation on Beethoven's lifestyle; the composer's debt to Shakespeare's The Tempest ; and the unknown authorship of newly discovered cadenzas). Quality ranges from William Kinderman's rambling, difficult discussion on the opus 110 sonata to Richard Kramer's well-written and revelatory study of the structure of the opus 130 quartet. Most of the musical analyses are fashionably tolerant of subjective and intuitive approaches. All in all, this is a commanding debut that serious music collections should consider. --Daniel Fermon, Museum of Modern Art Lib., New York
