Glenn Stanley opens Beethoven Forum 6 with a consideration of the a€œpiano sonata culturea€ of the late eighteenth century and how Beethovena€™s sonatas influenced this culture. Lawrence Kramer explores the qTempestq sonata and the way it exemplifies qone of the leading intellectual projects of the Enlightenment, the project of speculative anthropology or 'universal history.'q Elaine R. Sisman examines the qlyrical, q qsmall-scaleq sonatas of Beethovena€™s middle period in relation to his renewed preoccupation with the idea of qfantasia.q Nicholas Marston concludes the volumea€™s consideration of the piano sonatas with a study of the development of a musical idea in the qHammerklavierq sonata. Birgit Lodes examines the relationship between the human and the divine as they are represented in the Gloria of Beethovena€™s great mass, the Missa solemnis. In a second article on this late masterpiece, Norbert Gertsch describes a subscription copy of the Missa solemnisa€”a copy that Beethoven had correcteda€”and its significance for a future scholarly edition of the work. Maynard Solomon offers a commentary, transcription, and translation of a papal document concerning the marriage of Beethovena€™s great-uncle Cornelius. In a review article, Nicholas Marston discusses the recent edition of the Landsberg 5 sketchbook and future prospects for sketchbook editions. Robert Levin concludes the volume with a review of Performing Beethoven, edited by Robin Stowell.In a review article, Nicholas Marston discusses the recent edition of the Landsberg 5 sketchbook and future prospects for sketchbook editions.
