The Last Master Passion and Glory Vol 3

Olitude and performed with ferocious energy As the story culminates in Beethoven's epiphany at the moment of death John Suchet invests him with a tragic grandeur missing from conventional biographies and completes a tale as immortal as the music itse. A fictionalized idea of who Beethoven was written by someone who has spent much time researching the composer s life I find that the fictionalized account really follows the events in his life well as well as makes the reading engaging that your average text on the long dead geniusBeethoven comes across so as a real person with feelings loveangerfamily problemsand the whole range of human ness that we often forget about when we are in awe of his amazing music Kudos for MrSuchet for taking on such a tough job That said there are times in this series where the characters are a bit too contrived and soap opera like But I suppose that is necessary to add the human emotional element I have uickly gone through the 3 books in this series I do recommend this for people who are beginning to learn about Beethoven s life who also find biographies tedious to read This series brings a bit of life from the past

review ç E-book, or Kindle E-pub Õ John Suchet

A masterly novel of genius passion and anguish Passion and Glory is the final volume in John Suchet's remarkable telling of the life of Ludwig Van BeethovenBeethoven's last years were a time of great artistic triumph yet unrelenting personal torment. At over 1400 pages the trilogy demands a big investment of time and patience The time spent is rewarded by Suchet s uniue vision of the inspiration for this most marvellous music Unfortunately I found myself losing patience long before I reached the end not just with the detailing of the agonies of deafness on almost every page and Suchet s endless repetition of stock phrases but with Beethoven s daily dealings with the people in his life Bullied by his father Ludwig appears to have responded by verbally abusing everyone he met He was constantly and consistently rude to his parents his brothers his friends fellow musicians his patrons he even snubbed the Empress It does not make for uplifting reading Either this was a man I am glad I never met or Suchet is unduly harsh on his subject I can accept that with the passing of years and frustration at losing a musician s most important sense Beethoven became an angry and bitter old man But was he always that way Would he have made life long friends in his youth if he was as unpleasant as Suchet would have us believe Suchet describes the young Ludwig as never close to his parents but Ludwig later wrote of his mother she was such a wonderful mother to me my best friend As far as the music is concerned I was happy to rely on Suchet s intimate knowledge and I was moved by his accounts of the creation of the pieces that I know that I could hear in my head as he described them I was left with one disappointment however Before he left Bonn Ludwig wrote themes which he discarded inspired by the Rhine and the ancient myths surrounding that great river I knew that his last symphony had drawn on earlier themes and I fully expected Suchet to make the connection Apparently there is no connection A pity

With his 'Eternal Beloved' now in the past Beethoven returns to Vienna in 1812 a city celebrating the defeat of Napoleon This is the era of Symphony No 7 the 'Battle' Symphony and of Symphony No 9 with its 'Ode to Joy' Monumental pieces composed in s. Overall the 3 book series is interesting entertaining and well written It would have been nice to see some things in the composer s life depicted that weren t even mentioned The author spent a large amount of time on Fidelio While I agree it s a great work as Beethoven never composed anything bad there s no way it s significant than the Seventh or Ninth symphonies Read it with a grain of salt

    SPOILER ALERTThis whole trilogy was a wonderful way of putting most of the known facts about Beethoven into perspective I thought Mr Suchet did an admirable job of keeping it interesting while including a great deal of information Since Beethovenology is an active field this only represents what was believed at the time of writing but most of the facts are pretty straightforward The identity of the Immortal Beloved is st
