Beethoven's Letters

Excerpt

Mr. Shedlock's English translation of Dr. Kalischer's Complete Collection of Beethoven's Letters has now unfortunately been out of print for many years. I therefore willingly accepted the publishers' proposal for a handier and less expensive form of this work, to be brought about by a selection of those letters which, bearing more particularly on the music of Beethoven or more directly on his character, are of great interest to the general lover of music. Having first sought the approval of Mr. Shedlock's executrix, Mrs. Manning, I immediately availed myself of some corrections which Mr. Shedlock sent me some years ago for another work.

The present selection in one volume is a book for the general reader, rather than for the musical researcher and historian. I feel sure that every music-lover who has not Dr. Kalischer's German collection (1220 letters) will be thankful for this condensation, which contains all that is most valuable as a search-light on the music and the character of Beethoven.

A. EAGLEFIELD-HULL.
