The Personal Beethoven: Episode 5, Music for Another Time Michael Chertock Presents

    • Music

Triumphs and sufferings define Beethoven’s personal and professional life. His brother Carl dies, Beethoven becomes foster parent to his nephew, all while his profound deafness challenges his ability to communicate with others. His final works, while baffling and confusing to some of his contemporaries, are, in Beethoven's words, for another time. In this fifth and final episode, Michael also discusses the late five piano sonatas, and Beethoven’s almost experimental approach to composition.
