"Drawing on old maps, contemporary drawings and paintings, portraits and other archive material, the excellent Famous Composers series not only presents a factual outline of the composers' lives, but also conveys a clear visual picture of the social and historical background to their music. Recommended for all ages." - The Good Book Guide
