Let's Talk About Beethoven

A Seductive Musical Guide

Eleonore Büning, one of the most renowned music critics in Germany, takes us into the world of Beethoven and shows why we continue to be enthralled by him time and again. Why his music polarizes, nowadays just as it did in his own lifetime, and why the composer still moves us deeply.

Ludwig van Beethoven has accompanied Eleonore Büning all her life: he was the subject of her dissertation (How Beethoven Reached His Pedestal) and of a radio series presented by her on the culture-segment of the RBB (Radio Berlin Brandenburg), which also formed the basis of this book.

LET’S TALK ABOUT BEETHOVEN is a unique portrait that draws from immense knowledge, is highly entertaining and is carried, first and foremost, by an unconditional love for music.
