BOOKS ‣ Immortal: Jessica Duchen's Captivating Novel Presents Beethoven's Life Post-1799
HorizonVU's recommendation for holiday reading is Jessica Duchen's, Immortal. It seems only appropriate that mention be made of this superlative account of Beethoven's life on the occasion of his
250th anniversary, but this novel goes beyond Beethoven bringing the Maestro to life against the historically critical, turbulent period from the French Revolution to the Napoleonic wars, the global conflicts fought during Napoleon Bonaparte's imperial rule over France (1805–1815). You will find the book at Amazon and other booksellers.
