Christian Gottlob Neefe

Post by dirk_gently » Sun Feb 04, 2007 11:38 am

Hi all!
This is my first post here at The Classical Music Guide Forums.
I am doing this project on Beethoven in Hebrew and I'm having trouble translating the name of Beethoven's first important teacher, Christian Gottlob Neefe. Can anyone please explain to me how you pronounce his name?

Near as I know, it would be pronounced kriss-TEEAHN GAWTT-lohb NAY-feh, with the accents on the capitalized letters. [Christian, at the TEEAHN almost has the "ch" sound, but a soft and fast "ch."] Neefe studied with Hiller so Beethoven's musical background has some most interesting roots.

Thank you for the answer. This definitively helps me translate the name to Hebrew. :)
