Great listening, fun facts
This is a cursory overview of a number of famous composers, from Chopin & Bach to Stephen Foster. Really fun, interesting and benevolently gossipy! Great for trips and great as an introduction to musical giants' personal lives, so one my choose who to investigate further.
I am a composer/biography junkie, so they are all fascinating to me!
Both readers were wonderful; clear, appropriate emphasis, animated when needed.
It was fun to learn that Brahms was a, for lack of a more accurate term, slob!
