Title: The Beethoven Song Companion

Publisher: Manchester University Press

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 324 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.1in. x 0.7in.This is the first full-length, published study of Beethovens songs. All the composers songs with piano are included, with full German texts and translations, together with comprehensive notes on the poetry and the music. The inclusion of unfinished songs gives a fascinating insight into Beethovens compositional methods. An introductory essay considers reasons for the relative neglect of the songs, the significance of Beethovens choice of texts, his crucial role in the development of German art-song and specific aspects such as choice of key. Throughout the book, poetic and musical texts are discussed in their historical context, and in the overall context of Beethovens life and music. It is anticipated that this book, like its predecessor The Schubert Song Companion, will encourage the performance and study of an important but comparatively neglected aspect of the work of the worlds most celebrated composer.

All the composer's songs with piano are included, with full German texts and translations, together with comprehensive notes on the poetry and the music. The inclusion of unfinished songs gives a fascinating insight into Beethoven's compositional methods.

Throughout the book, poetic and musical texts are discussed in their historical context, and in the overall context of Beethoven's life and music. This book will be of interest and value to singers and their accompanists, as well as to enthusiasts. The details on locations of autographs and the genesis of key works will also be an aid to further academic research. It is anticipated that this book, like its predecessor The Schubert Song Companion, will encourage the performance and study of an important but comparatively neglected aspect of the work of the world's most celebrated composer.
