The Man RevealedBook - 2012
Beethoven scholar John Suchet has had a lifelong passion for the man and his music. In this book, he illuminates Beethoven's difficult childhood, his struggle to find a wife, his ungovernable temper, his emotional volatility, his tendency to push away those trying to help him, and in middle age, his obsessive compulsion to control his nephew's life. John Suchet is recognized as a leading authority on the life and works of Ludwig van Beethoven.
