Beethoven needs no introduction. There are already plenty of accounts of his life and work, and there will undoubtedly be no shortage of hefty biographies to mark his 250th birthday. If you would prefer a more concise way to learn about this musical giant, then this well-regarded miniature by Beethoven conoisseur Paul Wiegler is the perfect choice. He sketches the life of the tragic maestro in a few swift strokes – with an engaging literary style and great subject knowledge. Over 150 colour images illustrate a career of that played out between Bonn and Vienna, Teplitz and Baden, Berlin and Prague, and brought us the Ode to Joy and so much more besides.
