Two Beethoven Sketchbooks

£19.99

Product description

Edited with commentaries by Gustave Nottebohm
Translated by Jonathan Katz
Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1979.
Hardback; 145 x 220 mm; blue boards with gold titles on spine; xii & 130 pages. Original unclipped dust jacket.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound. There is some discoloration along the top and bottom edges of the covers with very slight bumping. The dust jacket is partially faded with some bumping. There is some tanning of the edges of the jacket internally. The recto of the front free endpaper is annotated in blue ink: “To Dad Love Charles July 1979”, with a small address label: “HUNT PEN-Y-BANC PARSONAGE LANE PENSFORD BRISTOL BS18 4JE”, and a few marks. The top edges of the leaves are tanned and very slightly foxed.
Gustav Nottebohm (1817–1882) was a pianist, teacher, musical editor and composer who spent most of his career in Vienna. He is particularly celebrated for his studies of Beethoven. He was a pioneer researcher in what are now described as 'Beethoven studies'. He sought out Beethoven relics and produced an important 'thematic catalogue' of Beethoven's works. His greatest contribution, however, is probably his series of essays and commentaries on several of the musical 'sketchbooks' in which Beethoven notated and elaborated his initial ideas.
The commentaries in this book covering the sketchbooks of 1802 and 1803 were published in 1865 and 1880 respectively. Until this book was published they had never before been fully translated into English. This is a book for everyone who is interested in the initiation of a musical work and a handbook for students.
