Beethoven's "Eroica" Sketchbook (2 vols)

£250.00

Product description

This massive work is perhaps the latest comprehensive and scholarly analysis of Beethoven's "Eroica" sketchbook. The composer's original scores have been a subject of fascination ever since (indeed, even before) his death in 1827, and the sketchbook is now in the safekeeping of the Biblioteka Jagiellonska in Krakow, Poland. This publication not only deals with the history, structure and significance of the sketchbook itself, printing the score in modern notation with copious notes to aid the scholar, but in the second volume, provides a facsimile reproduction of the original pages, themselves worthy of detailed study.

Lewis H. Lockwood (b. 1930) is an American musicologist specialising in the music of the Italian Renaissance and the life and work of Ludwig van Beethoven. He has been described him as "a leading musical scholar of the postwar generation, and the leading American authority on Beethoven".

Alan Gosman is/has been Assistant Professor of Music Theory at the University of Michigan, U.S.A.

Our copy is in excellent, virtually unused, condition, bound in olive-green cloth with bright gilt titles etc on front and spine and olive-green endpapers. There are a few small marks on the back, and a small brownish stain on the front of Vol 2, but Vol 1 is marred only by some very small whitish marks on the spine. Inside, both volumes are tightly bound, clean and unblemished throughout. The special interest, however, is in the dedication (in biro) on the front fep of Vol 1, which reads: "September 10, 2014 To John Eliot Gardiner with admiration, from Lewis Lockwood". Sir John Eliot Gardiner is of course a famous English conductor, founder of the Monteverdi Orchestra (later the English Baroque Soloists) and the Monteverdi Choir.
