Book Overview
Life of Beethoven is a 1840 biography of Beethoven written by his friend Anton Schindler. Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was a German composer and pianist. Beethoven's musical prowess was recognised from an early age, and he soon became famous as a virtuoso pianist and composer. However, after having gone almost completely deaf by 1814, Beethoven ceased public performances and appearances entirely. One of the most celebrated composers in Western history, Beethoven's music remains amongst the most commonly-performed classical music around the world. Contents include: First Period - From His Birth To The Year 1800, Second Period - From 1800 To October, 1813, Third Period - From November, 1813, Till His Death, in 1827, Part I, Third Period - Till His Death In 1827, Part II, Third Period - From 1824 Till Beethoven's Death In 1827, Part III, Musical Observations, etc. A unique early biography of Beethoven by someone who knew him personally not to be missed by those with an interest in classical music in general. Anton Felix Schindler (1795-1864) was a friend, secretary, and biographer of Ludwig van Beethoven. Other notable works by this author include: Beethoven as I knew him (1996) and The life of Beethoven (1966). Read & Co.
