Beethoven’s Bad Influence

Beethoven transformed music—but has veneration of him stifled his successors? In the magazine this week, Alex Ross examines the composer’s life and legacy:

“Beethoven is a singularity in the history of art—a phenomenon of dazzling and disconcerting force. He not only left his mark on all subsequent composers but also molded entire institutions. … The musicians’ platform became the stage of an invisible drama, the temple of a sonic revelation.”

Illustration by Daniel Adel

The joy of listening to Beethoven is comparable to the pleasure of reading Joyce: the most paranoid, overdetermined interpretation is probably the correct one.
