I've learned so much about this great composer,thanks to Maynard Solomon...the author of the book..."Beethoven".
He's really helped me understand what made Beethoven tick....as he delves into the history of the Beethoven Family.
I always feel it's important to know where a person came from...his background,his family,his childhood.
These facts leave indelible marks on the boy who is to become a man.
Beethoven is no different...what happened to him and his family had a great bearing on how the composer turned out and why he wrote as he did.

Solid Analysis of Beethoven
This is a great book for an introduction to Beethoven's life and music. My only comment is that Solomon's analysis is a bit Freudian, which is just a personal dislike.
