Beethoven Essays

3.74 of 5 stars 3.74  ·  rating details  ·  19 ratings  ·  2 reviews
This book contains virtually all of my important Beethoven essays, most of which were written during the past ten years. Primarily, these are depth studies of psychological, historical, and creative issues whose implications cannot be fully explored within the confines of a narrative biography.
Paperback, 288 pages
Published October 1st 1990 by Harvard University Press (first published July 8th 1988)

Worth it for the translation of Beethoven's Tagebuch. But Solomon shouldn't psychoanalyze Beethoven in other essays. That is quite ridiculous.
Some of this essays are good. Interesting book: original point of view, also if it isn't always convincing.
