Beethoven & freedom

Over the last two hundred years, Beethoven's music has been synonymous with modernity's 'absolute' value-freedom. Author Daniel KL Chua explores how Beethoven's music engages with freedom's aspirations and dilemmas, challenging the current image of Beethoven, and suggesting an alterior freedom that can speak ethically to the twenty-first century.
