Recommended by Arnie of my GR group. Arnie wrote the following at my group on 12/24/12: "Also, for comic relief, Victor Borge's 'My favorite Comedies in Music'---Borge gives hilarious accounts of the lives of the great composers and musicians---if you like Dave Barry, or Richard Armour, you'll love this---he also has a second equally funny book, 'My favorite Intermissions in Music..'"
