"Beethoven, born into the era which had superseded Bach's had to fight for his faith in a world now dominated by doubt rather than by hope, and by reason rather than conviction [. . .] Professor Mellers believes, and forcefully argues, that by the end of his spiritually eventful life he had become a religious composer of a kind without precedent. This view of Beethoven is elaborated with constant reference to his music." - from dust wrapper blurb. ; viii, , 453 pages. Blue cloth boards. Page dimensions: 235 x 153mm. Bookseller Inventory #
