Last Master Slipcaseby John Suchet
In this trilogy of novels, John Suchet brilliantly recreates the life of Ludwig Van Beethoven, arguably the greatest composer of all time. Passion and Anger follows the prodigy as he cultivates his own unique place in the musical life of Vienna, including his first public performance at the age of seven. This first novel also looks at his father's descent into alcoholism and his mother's tragic early death, both defining experiences for the young composer. Passion and Pain, the second volume, depicts the composer at the height of his powers yet beset by his deafness, the great tragedy of his life. The final volume, Passion and Glory, recreates Beethoven's last years, a time of artistic triumph, yet unrelenting personal torment. As the story culminates in Beethoven's epiphany at the moment of his death, John Suchet invests him with a tragic grandeur missing from conventional biographies, completing a tale as immortal as the music itself.
A three-volume fictional biography of Ludwig van Beethoven.
