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?

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
