London, Jan 3 (ANI): A music professor from the University of Manchester has made a daring move by revising the music penned by Beethoven.

After spending 10 years studying the German composer’s 35 sonatas, Professor Barry Cooper believes that he has come up with the definitive version of the works that Beethoven actually meant to write.

Cooper has officially launched the revised version of the 35 sonatas, including three little-known pieces that Beethoven wrote when he was 12.

The outcome is a three-volume publication that includes Prof Coopers revised manuscripts and a 150,000-word commentary to aid performers.

What Ive done is try to reproduce what Beethoven actually wrote and what he meant to write more accurately than in any previous edition, Times Online quoted Prof Cooper, as saying. (ANI)
