Product Overview

Beethoven's concertos for piano and for violin rank among the most famous and beloved works in the concert literature. The composer regarded the piano concertos, which he himself premiered, as very personal vehicles for conveying his musical thought and performance style. In this pathbreaking book, Leon Plantinga brings to bear his years of scholarship in Romantic-era music, establishing the circumstances surrounding the composition and first performances of all of Beethoven's concertos. He locates the works in their social and musical context, and discusses their form, style, and affect, highlighting their expressive individuality. Finally, Plantinga looks at the vexing questions about performing this repertoire today.
