Synopsis:

The concluding volume of John Suchet?s fascinating fictional biography of Ludwig van Beethoven features the great dramas of the composer?s final years, as his growing deafness becomes the source for unrelenting misery and ever more sublime music. This is the era of the Battle Symphony, the Seventh, the Diabelli Variations, the Missa Solemnis, the Ninth, and the Ode To Joy, of monumental pieces composed in solitude and performed with ferocious energy to rapturous audiences in Austria and Germany. After his love for his Eternally Beloved is finally consigned to the past, Beethoven?s return to Vienna in 1813 marks the advent of a gloriously creative period as he discovers renewed artistic purpose amid a city celebrating the defeat of Napoleon. Meticulously researched yet told in a vividly readable style, this is a story as immortal as the music itself.

Product Description: A masterly novel of genius, passion and anguish, Passion and Glory is the final volume in John Suchet's remarkable telling of the life of Ludwig Van Beethoven.

Beethoven's last years were a time of great artistic triumph, yet unrelenting personal torment. With his 'Eternal Beloved' now in the past, Beethoven returns to Vienna in 1812, a city celebrating the defeat of Napoleon. This is the era of Symphony No. 7, the 'Battle' Symphony, and of Symphony No. 9 with its 'Ode to Joy'. Monumental pieces composed in solitude and performed with ferocious energy. As the story culminates in Beethoven's epiphany at the moment of death, John Suchet invests him with a tragic grandeur missing from conventional biographies and completes a tale as immortal as the music itself.
