Conversations with Beethoven (NYRB Classics)
Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 1590177622 | 2014 | 304 pages | 2 MB / 0.7 MB

Deaf as he was, Beethoven had to be addressed in writing, and he was always accompanied by a notebook in which people could scribble questions and comments. Conversations with Beethoven, in a tour de force of fictional invention, tells the story of the last year of Beethoven’s life almost entirely through such notebook entries: Friends, family, students, doctors, and others attend to the volatile Maestro, whose sometimes unpredictable and often very loud replies we infer. A fully fleshed and often very funny portrait of Beethoven emerges. He struggles with his music and with his health; he argues with and insults just about everyone. Most of all, he worries about his wayward—and beloved—nephew Karl. A large cast of Dickensian characters surrounds the great composer at the center of this wonderfully engaging novel, which deepens in the end to make a memorable music of its own.

The Middle of the Journey (New York Review Books Classics Series)

Lionel Trilling,"The Middle of the Journey"

NYRB Classics | September 1, 2002 | PDF | ISBN: 1590170156 | 400 pages | 1.4mb

Published in 1947 as the Cold War was heating up, Lionel Trilling’s only novel was a prophetic reckoning with the ideological conflicts that would come to a head in the McCarthy era. But this work of complex deliberation, high passion, and tragic import is no less striking for its richly detailed, often slyly humorous picture of the manners and mores of the intelligentsia.

Jazz, Fusion, Jazz Funk, Free Jazz, R&B | RCA / Legacy / Sony Music #88697445492

This five-disc set, contained in a cardboard sleeve that bundles standard jewel cases, consists of Lonnie Liston Smith & the Cosmic Echoes' four albums for Flying Dutchman – Astral Traveling (1973), Cosmic Funk (1974), Expansions (1974), and Visions of a New World (1975) – along with their first for RCA, Reflections of a Golden Dream (1976). Some of the albums were intermittently elusive, at least when it came to the CD format, throughout the years, so this was a convenient – and affordable – way to get them in one shot. However, it went out of print quickly after its 2009 release.
