Book sale season has officially started

It is a beautiful sunny day today and the sale tables have appeared on the sidewalks. I managed to score the first two parts of a trilogy about the composer Ludwig van Beethoven, by John Suchet. Will be looking around to try and find the last volume.

The main reasons I want to read these are because...
1 - Beethoven was deaf (and being somewhat hard of hearing myself, I do have some understanding) and
2 - I grew up listening to the symphonies being played on a daily basis, along with a healthy dose of Mozart & Bolero.

Mad About Beethoven

Volume 1
