About this title


The author has assembled instructions & indications for the execution & interpretation of all 32 sonatas & several other piano works by Beethoven. Drake has drawn extensively from the composer's own words & from the writing of several of his pupils & contemporaries notably Czerny, Schindler, Moscheles, & Ries. An introductory chapter deals with Beethoven's musical training, his relations with his students, and the characteristics of the piano for which he wrote. The author explores specific problems in the sonatas and, with the aid of nearly 350 musical excerpts, indicates Beethoven's own solutions. The musical excerpts are invaluable!
