"A very impressive scholarly edition of the most famous and important of Beethoven's sketchbooks, long treasured for their illumination of Beethoven's works. The difficult notations are deciphered scrupulously and ingeniously, and Lockwood and Gosman have not hesitated to add their clarifications of obscure notations right on the transcription pages."--Joseph Kerman, author of Opera and the Morbidity of Music
"Without question, the publication of this book is a cause for rejoicing among the community of Beethoven scholars and all those who undertake serious studies of Beethoven's music. Lockwood and Gosman's transcription of Beethoven's notoriously difficult notation is an achievement of the first order."--Richard Kramer, author of Unfinished Music
"For Lockwood himself it must be reckoned the crowning achievement of a highly distinguished career that is even yet not over. . . . I welcome this hugely impressive work by Lockwood and Gosman. It finally completes a circle that leads all the way back to 1880 and to Nottebohm, and at last brings Landsberg 6 before our eyes and ears."-Music and Letters
