We do not understand music-it understands u. This aphorism by Theodor W. Adorno expresses that quandary and fascination many listeners have felt in approaching Beethoven's late quartets. No group of compositions occupies a more central position in chamber music, yet the meaning of these works continues to stimulate debate. William Kinderman's The String Quartets of Beethoven stands as the most detailed and comprehensive exploration of the subject.

Kinderman's detailed examination of Beethoven's music traces the composer's intellectual and musical development, from the early works written in Bonn to the Ninth Symphony and the late quartets. Bringing fresh insight to the composer's aesthetic ideals and compositional methods, he shows how Beethoven's response to the political and philosophical currents of his time is reflected in some of his greatest masterpieces. Combining musical insight and the most recent research, Beethoven is both a portrait of the man and a guide to his music.

Wonderful! All of Beethoven's piano sonatas in one place.

A Treasure Trove for Music Experts... because the author analyzes very finely a number of Beethoven's compositions. If I had ANY TRAINING in music, I am sure that I would have been entranced by all these insights and interpretations; but unfortunately, I have absolutely no knowledge about the inner workings of music and can only assume that those who do will find this book fascinating. Despite my ignorance, I stuck with reading the book (scanning over the passages that dealt with the mechanics of music), gained some insight from the author's interpretations, and now know that behind the music created is more than just what meets the ear.

I bought this because I am a musician (sing & play flute & clarinet). I have always been a fan of Beethoven, and thought this book would be fascinating. While there is plenty of information about him given, it is written in such a way that I have yet to finish reading it. It is very dry, clinical, and quite frankly, boring. I had hoped for an entertaining, insightful read but have been sorely disappointed.

I am a longtime fan of Beethoven- the greatest artist yet born, but like most I don't know enough about the man and his life.
This book begins with, and is thoroughly bogged-down by philosophical wanderings so far away from Beethoven himself that I often wondered what the author's intent was. I think I finally found out: to impress us with his knowledge of the arcane workings of musical form.
I would like a good biography of Beethoven, Please.
Do not buy this book.

I thought I was ordering a factual history of Beethoven, not a detailed epistle on his music. I was extrememly disappointed. I would think only a professional classical trained musician would enjoy this book.

This unhackneyed, interesting book surveys Beethoven's music via representative, sometimes little known works, arrayed in a loose biographical framework. Kinderman concentrates on Beethoven's characteristic traits, many of which are clearly audible already in the composer's childhood and teenage works. The book is aimed at a general audience, though a little familiarity with Beethoven's music and basic musical terminogy is useful (sonata, recapitulation, key).

The book conveys an idea of some of Beethoven's compositional techniques (the analyses are relatively brief, and often only cover aspects of given works, but many are extremely insightful). In more descriptive passages, Kinderman hones in on the essential in the music, without wasting time with the usual sturm+drang+fate baggage too often equated with Beethoven. Typical Beethovenish features, such as the mischievous sense of humor, and the sensory and emotional effects achieved without a trace of sentimentality, get their due too.

To be sure, there are some flaws. The segments on certain philosophical tendencies of the time were not interesting (for me), but Kinderman does clearly label these optional. Fortunately, the reader can easily separate out subjective interpretations from the first rate analyses, since Kinderman doesn't disguise his views in pretend academic authority. I do somewhat cringe at the musicological cliche of calling Beethoven's middle period "heroic". To me, this baffling label puts a false programmatic spin on what is really extremely varied music. In the same vein, the one composition really nicknamed "heroic" may get the only really overblown interpretation in the book (what is known about Beethoven's original sketch plans for the Eroica doesn't to me seem to support Kinderman's view). Fortunately, I never got the feeling that Kinderman tried to cram his views down anyone else's throat.

Otherwise, the book remains on solid ground. I upgraded my original four stars to five, since I think this book is very useful to those who love the music and want to understand some of it a little better. Currently nothing else (that's in print and easily available) does the job as well as Kinderman.
