Beethoven: The Sonatas For Piano And Violin: Thoughts On Their Interpretation

Beethoven: The Sonatas for Piano and Violin: Thoughts on their Interpretation

The first in over half a century to be devoted to a detailed analysis of the complete Beethoven sonatas for violin and piano, this book arose from the author's desire to pass on to a younger generation more than sixty years' experience as a practising musician and teacher. Professor Rostal addresses himself to professional and amateur musicians alike, to students and to listeners, all of whom will derive pleasure and enlightenment from his words.

Each of the ten Sonatas is carefully discussed, the manuscripts and first and later editions meticulously compared. Musicians will find technical and interpretative problems approached and solved and the music-lover a helpful listener's guide to these ever-popular masterpieces. As the Amadeus Quartet's Preface says of this important book, `It is a "must" for all students and performers, and is a "must" for all lovers of Beethoven.'

Review
(A) valuable resource for teachers, students and performers (...) Throughout, Rostal's love for these masterpieces is evident. --Strigendo
