Beethoven is one of the most famous composers in music's long history. Today he is acclaimed as the apotheosis of Viennese Classicism and trailblazer of Romanticism, and the influence of his works on musical history cannot be overestimated. But who was the person and what were the stories behind the genius Beethoven? The music journalist Detmar Huchting sheds light on the composer's exciting, but not always easy, life. Anecdotes, excerpts from letters, numerous pictures and four music CDs with Beethoven's most famous and beautiful works performed by renowned orchestras and first-rank interpreters make this volume an entertaining delight to read and listen to. A must-have for classical music lovers.

Detmar Huchting was born in 1954 in Hamburg, Germany and grew up there and in Bremen. A music-loving family home laid the foundation, the boys choir of the Church of Our Lady in Bremen strengthened it and built a love of early music with works from Schütz to Bach. A classical education led on to a broad-based study of the humanities, ranging from theology to Nordic languages and literature and musicology. Huchting has worked with and for record labels since 1978. Today, the music critic, journalist and author lives in Frankfurt am Main.
