The second volume of Beethoven's letters begin with the composer in maturity. In these later years, several of his most accomplished and beautiful musical works were completed. It is clear from these written correspondences that music occupies a greater place in Beethoven's life; more frequently, he appends samples of and discusses musical phrasing and notation, giving readers insight into his methods of composition. Although Beethoven concealed his increasing deafness for years, it eventually became public knowledge.

His ability to compose beautiful music was however undiminished, and demonstrated in concerts around Europe. Thought remarkable by the public, Beethoven nevertheless lived in quite modest circumstances, but felt deep appreciation for the acclaim with which he was held by various orchestral and philharmonic societies. In personal matters, Beethoven demonstrates great affection for his nephew Carl, whom he had won custody in the courts. However, the letters also reveal an irascible and controlling side to the composer: insistent that his nephew - whom he came to view as a son - be musically trained, the news that Carl's musical talents are negligible is a blow.
Carl's subsequent intention to pursue a military career strains their relationship further. Despite these trials, Beethoven had the support of friends until the very end; his illness worsening, he was able to borrow money to pay for care, but it soon became clear he was on his deathbed.

The first volume of Ludwig van Beethoven's letters covers the period from his youth as an ambitious and fledgling young talent living in Vienna, to his peak years wherein he saw musical composition not merely as a career, but as his life's purpose. Early in his career, Beethoven's writings are divided between professional correspondence between members of the aristocracy who sponsored him; and tender missives to young women whom he desired to court; and a few close and valued friends.
Reliant on the patronage of the wealthy, it is during this period that Beethoven penned many fine works.
Beethoven's Letters, Volume 1
Beethoven was however hampered by romantic failures owing to his lower social class - Josephine Brunsvik, an aristocratic woman who reciprocated his advances, is eventually forced to break off the relationship. Later, in confessing his feelings to his 'Immortal Beloved', it is apparent that Beethoven suffered with depression.
We see in Beethoven's early correspondences a sensitive and emotional soul, well-versed in the courtly manners of the day. When talking with friends, he demonstrates a keen and sometimes jocular sense of humor, which the translator of this edition - Lady Grace Jane Wallace - did her utmost to maintain in English. This volume closes on a more uplifting note; the mature Beethoven has settled upon his life's purpose of musical composition.
His love of music's sublimity has led him to compose soaring and bold symphonic works. However, he also becomes embroiled in a legal struggle regarding his nephew Carl.
