To mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, born in December 1770, Sandy guides us through the life and work of this brilliant, cantankerous, visionary and astonishingly original composer, a man who tore up the rule book of classical music. Visual illustrations include a selection of contemporary portraits, while music examples are drawn from his genre – bursting piano sonatas, quartets and symphonies, and from the visionary opera Fidelio. Beethoven was a true Romantic artist, or as he described himself, a “poet in sound.”
