Summary
Examining Beethoven's formative years and early career, this study shows how the composer was influenced by teachers, theorists and instruments. Skowroneck pays special attention to Beethoven's trills and legato, and thoroughly revises the idea that Beethoven treated his pianos roughly and with impatience throughout his career.
