Approximately between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., Marvin Rosen, host of Classical Discoveries, will talk to me about my novel, "The Black Spaniard," which looks at Beethoven's life from age 21 to age 33. (Reviews of The Black Spaniard by L.L. Holt are on Amazon.com .)
"The Black Spaniard" not only follows actual events in the life of Beethoven, but also puts them in historical context, exploring the often ignored cultural diversity of Vienna, Austria, at the turn of the century (late 1700s to early 1800s). There is also a surprise twist on the possible identity of the Immortal Beloved (remember: it's fiction!).
WPRB is the Princeton University radio station. Marvin's own site, www.ClassicalDiscoveries.org , will carry the December 6 program for a period of time following the broadcast. Listen up!
