Rate this:
Music historian Geoffrey Block explores in laymans terms a highly representative body of about two dozen Beethoven instrumental and vocal works, offering listeners who know him well, or are just discovering him, an opportunity to grasp the breadth and depth of his musical genius. Experiencing Beethoven places the composers works within the evolving context of his personal and professional life and social and cultural milieu. Block sheds light on the public and private audiences of Beethovens music, from the concerts for the composers own financial benefit to the debut of the “Eroica” Symphony at the palace of Prince Lobkowitz to the historic public premiere of his Ninth Symphony.
