Makes a great case for Beethoven. I didn't realize there were so many of his works I don't know in addition to the ones I do. Chopin is still my favorite, but I have new music to explore now and I do recognize the genius.

A great intertwining of story and the music that is vital to that story. Edifying and thoroughly enjoyable.
Maybe little bit short, you are supposed to know everything already. Story closer to Wikipedia than proper storytelling, but to able to hear the actual music makes it all worth.
I wanted to learn more about the great man and this book was the perfect introduction to his life, character and music. It was engaging, informative and interesting. I like the mixture of narrative , music and readings from contemporary diaries and letters etc. I enjoyed listening to this book : it is a great place to start your study.
