Synopsis

Composers by David Bouchier

Bringing the world of classical music to your fingertips, Fandex presents a field guide to the composers, their work, and the fascinating lives they led. From Vivaldi1, whose scores were hidden in a private collection for nearly two centuries, to Benjamin Britten, who began playing piano at the age of two and revived British opera - from Bach begetting Mozart to Beethoven begetting Brahms - it's a chronological continuum of celebrated composers. It includes a note on all key works, portraits and an answer to the question - did Salieri really have a hand in Mozart's death?
