Product Description


(M)ost effective as an introductory guide to any or all of Beethoven's major chamber works. Yet even readers thoroughly familiar with these works will find something of interest here on practically every one of them, in Watson's compact but incisive descriptions, his enthusiastic tone, and his engaging historical material. MUSIC & LETTERS (Watson) takes us into the spirit of each of the instrumental sonatas, trios and quartets - into their heart and soul as it were - and brings them to life in all their deep feeling, variety and colour. ... (he) shares with us his affection and enthusiasm for these marvellous works. STRINGENDOFilling a hole in scholarship on Beethoven's compositions, this book will be greatly appreciated by professional and amateur musicians. BOOK NEWSBR>This volume comprehends nearly the entirety of Beethoven's chamber output. (...) It offers perhaps the only English language coverage of this same territory, and the biographical material seems admirably up-to-date. (...) Recommended. CHOICE Angus Watson, himself a professional string-player, has (...) written an excellent book on Beethoven's complete chamber music. (...) Watson writes very well indeed, perceptively, without a hint of dryness, and aided by a generous number of music examples. (...) This book deserves a whole-hearted recommendation. CLASSICAL MUSIC Beethoven's Chamber Music in Context (...) is an excellent, comprehensive, authoritative and extremely enjoyable study of a subject about which most readers are sure to emerge better informed for reading the book. Musicians, listeners and even those interested in artistic endeavour in general (...) will all find the book rewarding. ... (It's) likely to remain standard for some long time. CLASSICAL.NET

Brilliant exposition of LVB's chamber works in the political, social and cultural context of the times in which they were written. Excerpts from the scores were especially helpful.
