I have little background in classical music, but Beethoven has always been my.I thoroughly loved this book.

However I knew nothing about Beethoven's life so this audiobook is a perfect introduction. It's 5 hours long, at least half of that is music (Naxos owns a library of classical music). Overall I'm really impressed and delighted with Jeremy Sipermann's "Life and Works", part of a series of classical composers. It's an education in classical music, with word and song.

Both types of music hold a certain value and although classical music sales are a small percentage compared to rock music, Beethoven. Classical music is typically very structured and organized. Due to this enhanced vision of what music was capable of, Beethoven justly felt that a creator of music like him deserved and needed to be mandated the same respect as the nobility. He rebelled by demanding esteem in no uncertain terms from his Viennese noble patrons, never once acquiescing his own individuality to further his career. Norton Company: New York, 2003.

Not to be confused with Classical literature. Moby-Dick by Herman Melville, an example of a "classic book". A classic is a book accepted as being exemplary or noteworthy, for example through an imprimatur such as being listed in a list of great books, or through a reader's personal opinion. Although the term is often associated with the Western canon, it can be applied to works of literature from all traditions, such as the Chinese classics or the Indian Vedas. What actually makes a work of literature a "classic book" is not just a consideration of extensively published authors.

This is part of a series of musical biographies, written and presented by broadcaster Jeremy Siepmann with Bob Peck as Beethoven. In this four-CD set, the life and music of the revolutionary composer/pianist is unveiled in considerable detail with many musical examples.

This is an enjoyable walk through the life and major works of Beethoven. I listened to it in the car during my commute and it made the time on the road fly by. The narration is insightful and well delivered. I would recommend this set to anyone who is looking to gain some insight into the life and times of a great composer and difficult man.

I have been familiar with Beethoven's music and certain important details of his life (his poor hearing and his initial admiration then contempt for Napoleon, for instance) but this musical anthology interspersed with in depth biographical information managed to educate me about the man and give me an even greater appreciation for the uniqueness of his music.

<Beethoven > Naxos is doing a wonderful job with its emerging "Life and Works" series. Quite some time ago, we had a Life/Works of Mozart, more recently one of Chopin and now two more, Liszt and Beethoven. Both are even better packaged than are the earlier sets, with a thick booklet that offers us essays on the historical background, the position of the composer in his time, a look at the major works, a listening plan, recommended readings, personalities, a calendar of the artist's life, a glossary, a discography--and finally something I thought I would never see, the text of the recording's narration. This booklet is worth the price of the set alone.
The Liszt set starts with the sound of artillery, the Beethoven with the sound of a cork popping. A good way to grab your attention, surely, but also to make you think they packaged the wrong disc in the jewel case!
Written and narrated by Jeremy Siepmann, the production enlists some excellent actors to play the people in the composer's life. In the "Beethoven" set (8.558024-27), we have Bob Peck as the usually tormented voice of Beethoven, who is joined by David Timson, Neville Jason, Elaine Claxton, and Karen Archer as the voices of Beethoven's friends, critics, and loves. The musical selections are drawn from the bottomless well of Naxos recordings.
As I commented with regard to the other sets, the music is well chosen but some of it simply lasts too long for those who are eager to get on to the facts of the composer's life. On the other hand, this IS called the Life and Works series, and perhaps a balance is to be maintained between the two aspects.
Beethoven's idiosyncrasies make a good comparison with those of Chopin, the former doing everything he could to call attention to himself, the latter withdrawn--but both acting like bloody fools in so many ways. Perhaps that is the price of genius. The tale of his "Immortal Beloved" is briefly treated here, but it is fascinating to follow his amores, which are invariably with women he could never hope to attain. The most surprising element is his early popularity as a Very Witty Person, an estimate he quickly lost when deafness came upon him.
Along with the other three sets, a both fascinating and informative recording.

Siepmann's wonderfully written and narrated work on the life of Beethoven is a truly educational--and enjoyable--traipse through the life of one of the world's greatest ever composer. What makes this offering by Naxos so special is the combination of an intelligently written script punctuated with a beautiful musical support that brings each of the pieces to life at the appropriate moments in the story. And these are no low-quality recordings, as we might see in some other, similar attempts: these are high-quality Naxos recordings, drawn from the huge Naxos library of recordings, many so good that you may find yourself "hunting down" some of these Naxos works in order to purchase the entire sets (unfortunately, however, not listed within the printed artwork for this work, a seemingly terrible omission. But never-the-mind, this is storytelling at its best, with a wonderful breadth of span that covers all of Beethoven's life, and lets us visualize the approximate moments when the composer focused his immense musical talents on the variety of genres he wrote for (symphonies, string quartets, choral works, bagatelles, and so on). It's marvelously done with the highest of production qualities from beginning to end, and I therefore cannot but else rate this as a straight five-star review, even when considering its somewhat high price. If you can find it used, that's all the better, but even if not, if you are a Beethoven fan, you'll find all kinds of interesting and enjoyable things in this impressive work.
