Barry Cooper is a noted musicologist and this is reflected in his approach to Beethoven. He provides in depth detail about the music, probably much more than the average concertgoers would prefer. For example, Mr. Cooper discusses the various key modulations that make Beethoven's approach to music revolutionary. Mr. Cooper does deal fairly with Beethoven's relationship to his nephew Karl and his legal battle to keep his nephew from the perceived corrupting influence of his mother Johanna. He also provides a good discussion about the famous "Immortal Beloved.
