Description

Biographic Beethoven (Hardcover)
By Marcus Weeks

Most people know that Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827) was a German composer, a musical prodigy whose Symphony No. 5 is recognizable the world over from its opening four notes. What, perhaps, they don’t know is that he was almost completely deaf for nearly half his life; that his father would often lie about when Beethoven was born to make his talents seem even more astonishing; that he wrote a sonata to be played with building implements and called it the “Hammer-Klavier Sonata”; and that he dedicated works to Napoleon and a dead poodle.

Biographic Beethoven presents an instant impression of his life, work, and legacy, with an array of irresistible facts and figures converted into infographics to reveal the composer behind the compositions.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
