It will make an impact on every musician and every listener who cares about great music and how that music is performed." - James Levine
A personal interpretation of Beethoven's last symphony and its cultural and political surroundings and impact.
Correspondence
Hundreds of fascinating letters, written between 1885 and 1956, by the most famous conductor in history.
