Conductor's Guide to Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 & Piano Concerto No. 4 | [Gerard Schwarz]

Conductor's Guide to Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 & Piano Concerto No. 4

The work of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) has been called the culmination of the Classical era or the wellspring of the Romantic era in European music. Historians today see him as the heir of Haydn and Mozart, carrying their musical discoveries to a new level of complexity and integration. But the generations of composers that followed Beethoven saw him more as the headstrong radical, breaking the shackles of classicism and showing new possibilities for music.

    "This is simply GREAT!"
    Any additional comments?

    I have loved Beethoven's music for many decades. But Mr. Schwartz's lesson here has raised my appreciation for this genius and his multidimensional talents to heights of which I have never dreamed. This little book is wonderful.
