'Here, at last, is a Beethoven who behaves like a real composer. That he does so is thanks to the careful accumulation of circumstantial detail with which Wyn Jones, a dispassionate and even-handed historian, fleshes out his subject's life.' BBC Music Magazine
' ... this book gives a better, more rounded picture of the Viennese environment in Beethoven's years there than any other Beethoven biography I know.' The Times Literary Supplement
' ... Jones brilliantly fulfills his promise to contextualize Beethoven ... No matter how smart about Beethoven you think you are you will find something of use here. And you will also be entertained. Jones is to be much congratulated. There is a real need for a short biography that is rich in context: Jones has filled the void.' The Beethoven Journal
