When the young palace steward Sebastian Reiser arrives in Vienna, Ludwig van Beethoven is just preparing for the premiere of his Ninth Symphony. The whole city is feverishly awaiting the concert in the Kärntnertortheater. But the performance is controversial – not just for the conservative music-lovers but also amongst the illegal fraternities. Reiser is given a chance to take part in the orchestra and gets drawn into a dangerous web of intrigue and shrouded politics.

In her biography, Kirsten Jüngling shows us who was really behind the great works that Ludwig van Beethoven left the world: an entirely inconsistent, moody and misanthropic man who lost his mother when he was 17 and who suffered at the hands of a domineering father. A multifaceted depiction of his life that brings Beethoven much closer to us than most biographies have done before.
