"The best of present-day Beethoven scholarship."-Stanley Sadie, editor of New Grove Dictionary of Music & Musicians. "Since 1992, the University of Nebraska Press has published a Beethoven Forum, which is rich in information and knowledge. Fundamental research and topicality, once the domain of the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, are admirably combined in the Forum."-Der Spiegel. An annual of international Beethoven studies, Beethoven Forum promotes and sustains the high level of scholarship inspired by Beethoven's extraordinary works. Volume 5 presents studies on Beethoven's Fidelio, his piano sonatas, and his uses of form and dynamics, along with reviews of Theodor Adorno's Beethoven's Philosophie der Musik and of recent writings on the Ninth Symphony. The contributors are Michael C. Tusa, Lee Rothfarb, Miriam Sheer, Michael Spitzer, William Kinderman, Stephen Hinton, and Scott Burnham. Lewis Lockwood is Fanny Peabody Professor of Music at Harvard University. The recipient of the Einstein, Kinkeldey, and Marraro prizes, he is also the author of Beethoven: Studies in the Creative Process.
