By Rich Gotshall
The Indianapolis Star
"Naxos AudioBooks continues to show an appreciation of the unique nature of audio books far beyond that of most audio publishers. Two recent works show this well.
"The Life and Works of Beethoven by Jeremy Siepmann (5 hours, $22.98) not only gives an overview of the composer's life, it also presents his work within the contexts of both Beethoven's life and his times. Excerpts from some of his most famous pieces illustrate the author's points well. In addition, some of his less widely known pieces are presented that demonstrate particular points about his work or life.
"The author quotes extensively from letters by and about Beethoven. Additional readers present these, giving the work a sense of immediacy that might be lacking were the lead narrator (in this case the author) to read them himself."
