Ludwig von Beethoven: Composer of the Classical and Romantic Eras


This comprehensive biography of one of history’s greatest composers will bring Beethoven back to life for contemporary young readers. In addition to a biographical treatment of his life, a thorough assessment is made of Beethoven’s musical stylings and developments—all in language suitable for upper-elementary-level readers. Eighteenth-century drawings coupled with modern photographs show readers Beethoven’s world as it was during his lifetime and as it is today. Vocabulary boxes reinforce select on-topic words that may be unfamiliar to readers, while Quick Fact sidebars add interesting tidbits, encouraging readers to think beyond the text.
