Secret Lives of Great Composers: What Your Teachers Never Told You about the World's Musical Masters
5.28 x 8 inches
With scandalous anecdotes about everyone from Gioachino Rossini (draft-dodging womanizer) to Johann Sebastian Bach (alleged cross-dresser), Secret Lives of Great Composers reveals the seamy, steamy, and gritty history behind the great masters of international music. You'll learn that Edward Elgar dabbled with explosives; that John Cage was obsessed with fungus; that Berlioz plotted murder; and that Giacomo Puccini stole his church's organ pipes and sold them as scrap metal so he could buy cigarettes. These are music history lessons you'll never forget!
