Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Siepmann presents the lives of Beethoven and Chopin through two musical biographies. Combining each composer's music with narrative, he demonstrates the development of each musician's skills and growth as an artist. Each audiobook contains an eight-page booklet, which discusses the artist's role in the Romantic Movement, his music, and some information on his life. Also included are musical credits and an outline of each cassette, as well as the best-known works of each composer. The diction is clear and precise with either minimal or no accent on the part of narrators Bob Peck, Karen Archer, and Neville Jason, among others. While neither of these tapes provides startling new insights into the composers, they do present a thorough and interesting sound portrait that will hold the attention of nonmusicians. This series would be of special interest to academic libraries and of use to large public libraries. Recommended. Laurie Selwyn, San Antonio P.L. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
