Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the Great Composer Countless books have been written about the life and myriad compositions comprising the enormous output of Ludwig van eethoven (1770-1827). The Beethoven Encyclopedia is the first book combining information in these books into one: and A to Z volume covering every aspect of the composer's life-his music, his patrons and friends, his personal life, and the forces that inspired his genius. Some abridged entries, selected at random: -Ramped: a musician who worked as Beethoven's copyist between 1823 and 1826. -Septet: one of his most popular chamber works, composed between 1799 and 1800 and published in 1802. Household: the Master was a poor housekeeper. He lived a very irregular life and had little feeling for order and neatness. (Bathing, however, was one of Beethoven's most indespensable habits). The definitive catalog of the composer's life and career from his birth to his death, The Beethoven Encyclopedia is a research volume for those studying music as well as interesting perusing for those who enjoy music.
