I'm a Krull fan since reading her short bios on Freud, Newton and DiVinci. This collection of short, four-miniute profiles of twenty musical heavyweights was enlightening and entertaining for all of us in the Rygh family. The girls enjoyed learning that Beethoven liked Mac and Cheese. And who knew that Gilbert and Sullivan--one of the most famous creative teams of all time--didn't speak to one another and never worked together? Satie, Boulanger and Prokofiev were new to me. After reading/listening to these compelling stories, classical music will never sound the same.
