A fantastic source of classical music from the medieval era to our days, this book is a jewel for anybody interested to dig deeper into the lives and background of famous composer, as well as to discover new composers. I use it as a coffee table book, and pick it up whenever I need something new to listen to, or sometimes I read about a composer that I am listening to at the same time. Warmly recommended!
