This antiquarian volume contains a comprehensive yet popular treatise on the life and work of Beethoven. Written in clear, plain language and full of interesting insights into the character of this master musician, 'Beethoven - His Spiritual Development' is a fascinating study ideal for those with no special knowledge of music. It deals primarily with human life in general, and will appeal to those with an interest in music, its cultural significance, and the contributions Beethoven has made to modern life and music. The chapters of this book include: 'Art and Reality', 'Music as Isolated', 'Music as Expression', 'Beethoven's Characteristics', 'The Morality of Power', 'The Mind of Beethoven', 'The Hero', 'The End of a Period', 'Love and Money', 'The Hammerclavier Sonata', 'God the Companion', and more. We are republishing this book with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
