Composers: Their Lives and Works Book

Notify me when this product is available:

Composers: Their Lives and Works Book features over 90 of the most influential composers throughout history, providing an enlightening look into their personal lives, relationships, and musical contributions. Biographical entries - introduced with a stunning portrait of each featured composer - trace the friendships, loves, and rivalries that inspired each musical genius. 

Profiles offer revealing insights into what drove each individual to create the musical masterpieces - symphonies, concertos and operatic scores - that changed the direction of classical music and are still celebrated and treasured today.

Lavishly illustrated with paintings or photographs of each composer, alongside original musical scores and personal correspondence, images of their homes and where they worked, and personal effects and other important artefacts, the book introduces the key influences, themes, and working methods of each individual, setting their works within a wider historical and cultural context.

Charting the development of classical music and music movements across the centuries, Composers provides a compelling glimpse into the personal lives, loves, and influences of the giants of the classical music canon.
