The Center for Beethoven Research at Boston University invites proposals for brief presentations at our virtual symposium on Beethoven biography to be held on Saturday, December 12, from 12:30 to 3:30 pm. The principal stimulus for this symposium is the publication of Lewis Lockwood's latest book, Beethoven's Lives: The Biographical Tradition. Your presentation may address any aspect of Beethoven biography, but we hope that, if possible, you might also address some of the questions and historical observations raised in Lockwood's book.
Presentations should last no longer than ten minutes, so that we may have a wide variety of points of view represented. Please send your proposals by November 15 to Jeremy Yudkin, Co-Director of the Beethoven Center at yudkinj -at- bu.edu
