Beethoven: The Man Revealed with John Suchet

John continues the dramatic story of Beethoven's attempts to win custody of his nine-year-old nephew after his brother's death. He lifts the lid on what happened in the courtroom and how the boy's mother attempted to visit her son in disguise - dressed as a man - while he was in Beethoven's care. He also plays music that Beethoven was composing during this tumultuous period in his life, including the first song cycle in musical history, An die Ferne Geliebte, and his greatest piano sonata to date, known as the 'Hammerklavier' sonata.
