Lewis Lockwood talks about his new book "Beethoven’s Lives" with Erica Buurman
In "Beethoven’s Lives," Lewis Lockwood, himself a much-lauded Beethoven biographer, tells the story of Beethoven biography, from the earliest attempts made directly after the composer's death to the present day. The book casts a wide net, tracing the story of Beethoven biography from Anton Schindler as biographer and falsifier, through the authoritative Alexander Wheelock Thayer and down to the present.

LEWIS H. LOCKWOOD is one of the leading authorities on Beethoven worldwide. Having taught at Princeton and Harvard, some of his key Beethoven publications include: "Beethoven: The Music and the Life" (Norton, 2003; translated into many languages), as well as "Beethoven's Symphonies: An Artistic Vision" (Norton, 2015) and with the Julliard String Quartet: "Inside Beethoven's Quartets: History, Performance, Interpretation" (Harvard University Press, 2008). He is known for his studies of Beethoven's life and work, including the composer's autograph manuscripts and sketchbooks.
