Klaus Martin Kopitz spent almost ten years collecting the numerous records by Beethoven's contemporaries; which were partly published separately over the course of two centuries. He presents them to the reader with state-of-the-art text analysis and scholarly criticism. Some of the prominent contemporaries include Bettina von Arnim; Muzio Clementi; Johann Wolfgang von Goethe; Franz Grillparzer; Nikolaus Lenau; Franz Liszt; and Ludwig Tieck. A chronology of sources as well as an index of their provenance; works and planned works and names of people round off this double volume. In its scope this edition far exceeds previous collections of its kind.
