About Ludwig van Beethoven

The triumphant genius of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) casts a long shadow over classical music -- no other composer of the past two centuries has exercised an influence more profound than his. A product of the classicist generation, he was the first of the Romantics, and his exhilarating works remain undiminished in their powers of enchantment.

Our customer reviews

Although the print is a little smaller than other publications the page turns are absolutely fantastic in this edition. I have been playing the Sonata in E flat major from another publisher's edition and found the page turns a nightmare, and was so surprised to find that particularly in the fast Rondo movement, all page turns were accommodated easily by a sustained note in one had or a lengthy rest.
