Overview

Glenn Stanley opens Beethoven Forum 6 with a consideration of the “piano sonata culture” of the late eighteenth century and how Beethoven’s sonatas influenced this culture. Lawrence Kramer explores the "Tempest" sonata and the way it exemplifies "one of the leading intellectual projects of the Enlightenment, the project of speculative anthropology or 'universal history.'" Elaine R. Sisman examines the "lyrical," "small-scale" sonatas of Beethoven’s middle period in relation to his renewed preoccupation with the idea of "fantasia." Nicholas Marston concludes the volume’s consideration of the piano sonatas with a study of the development of a musical idea in the "Hammerklavier" sonata.

Birgit Lodes examines the relationship between the human and the divine as they are represented in the Gloria of Beethoven’s great mass, the Missa solemnis. In a second article on this late masterpiece, Norbert Gertsch describes a subscription copy of the Missa solemnis—a copy that Beethoven had corrected—and its significance for a future scholarly edition of the work.

Maynard Solomon offers a commentary, transcription, and translation of a papal document concerning the marriage of Beethoven’s great-uncle Cornelius. In a review article, Nicholas Marston discusses the recent edition of the Landsberg 5 sketchbook and future prospects for sketchbook editions. Robert Levin concludes the volume with a review of Performing Beethoven, edited by Robin Stowell.

Editorial Reviews

Stanley Sadie
"The best of present-day Beethoven scholarship."—Stanley Sadie, editor of New Grove Dictionary of Music & Musicians
The Eighteenth Century - Malcom S. Cole
"Beethoven Forum, 6, rewards not only Beethoven aficionados, but also that broader readership attracted to the best of modern musical scholarship…..BF 6 is handsomely rendered. The clear imaginatively designed tables are instructive, the abundant musical examples are beautifully set, and the several diagrams and appendixes impart a wealth of information in a readily comprehensible manner. The scholars richly merit congratulations for their interdisciplinary command, their analyses, their revelations, and their insights. The editorial team as a whole has regained and quite possibly surpassed the standard of earlier volumes. For musicians and scholars of all persuasions, BF 6 is required reading."—Malcolm S. Cole, The Eighteenth Century: Current Bibliography
Der Spiegel
"Since 1992, the University of Nebraska Press has published a Beethoven Forum, which is rich in information and knowledge. Fundamental research and topicality, once the domain of the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, are admirably combined in the Forum."—Der Spiegel

Library Journal
Serials devoted to Beethoven are either published intermittently or are now defunct; should Beethoven Forum prosper, it would be the only ongoing source of serious Beethoven scholarship in the world. Although written for musicians, it will appeal to wider audiences, especially in historically oriented material (e.g., the effects of economic inflation on Beethoven's lifestyle; the composer's debt to Shakespeare's The Tempest ; and the unknown authorship of newly discovered cadenzas). Quality ranges from William Kinderman's rambling, difficult discussion on the opus 110 sonata to Richard Kramer's well-written and revelatory study of the structure of the opus 130 quartet. Most of the musical analyses are fashionably tolerant of subjective and intuitive approaches. All in all, this is a commanding debut that serious music collections should consider. --Daniel Fermon, Museum of Modern Art Lib., New York
