Beethoven Sketchbook Series
Series Editor: William Kinderman
Beethoven's sketchbooks were his workshop. Capturing the methods he used to craft his ideas into art, they reveal his complex creativity and offer rich material for examining his revision process. Variations in his entries reflect the range of his musical moods and offer clues about the circumstances of composition. His notes and shorthand can illuminate the ways he expanded and refined ideas, clarify biographical or musical mysteries, or call attention to deliberate links among compositions.
