Secret Lives of Great Composers
Who said that classical music and its composers are stuffy, mild, and boring? Many had foibles, failings, and lapses of judgment and ethical behavior. Elizabeth Lunday, author of The Secret Lives of Great Composers, delves into the little-known and seamier sides of the old and newer masters, exposing the scandal beneath the formality and structure of the classics. If you want the “inside story” on writers of the classics, this book provides brief biographical sketches of 34 of the best-known and beloved composers.
