9780090760404: Beethoven's String Quartets (University Library)

Beethoven's string quartets form one of the most intimate and revealing sections of his output, giving a full and varied picture of his musical personality. This study of the quartets by Philip Radcliffe, first published by Hutchinson University in 1965, was reissued by Cambridge University Press in 1978. Each work is examined in detail describing the development of Beethoven's style - a method that highlights the very strong individuality that remained unimpaired throughout the composition of these quartets. They are compared with Beethoven's other music and with the string quartets of composers before and since. This is a book which has proved itself to be of continuing value to the student of music at school and university level and to the general reader.

Review:

'The whole subject of the quartets has been gone into with deep concentration and affectionate understanding, and if the reader obtains as much pleasure from the perusal of this book as the author obviously has had from the writing of it, he is in for a good time.' Music Teacher
