R. Larry Todd: "Beethoven's Cello: Five Revolutionary Sonatas and Their World"

Tuesday, February 6, 2018
Professor Todd and Marc Moskovitz, principal cellist of the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra, are the authors of the book, released in October 2017 by Boydell & Brewer, UK.

In a video produced by Julie Schoonmaker (Duke University Office of News & Communication), Arts & Sciences Professor R. Larry Todd discusses the cultural and historical contexts of Beethoven's cello sonatas.  Beethoven's Cello: Five Revolutionary Sonatas and Their World is the first English-language book to examine these works in depth.

Earlier in 2017, Professor Todd produced a video with cellist Nancy Green in which he performs Beethoven's A Major Sonata, Op. 69 and discusses Beethoven's cello works.
