The Lives and Times of the Great Composers

´A glorious plum-pudding of a book, to be consulted, with pleasure and profit, over and over again´ Sir Jeremy Isaacs 

Michael Steen´s ´Great Composers´ was originally published in 2003. A lifetime´s work and almost 1000 pages long, it has since become ´the´ reference point and key read on the biographical backgrounds to classical music´s biggest names.

Authoritative and hugely detailed - but nonetheless a joy to read - this new edition will expand its readership further and capitalise on a newfound popular interest in classical music.

Steen´s book helps you explore the story of Bach, the respectable burgher much of whose vast output was composed amidst petty turf disputes in Lutheran Leipzig; or the ugly, argumentative Beethoven in French-occupied Vienna, obsessed by his laundry; or Mozart, the over-exploited infant prodigy whose untimely death was shrouded in rumour.

Read about Verdi, who composed against the background of the Italian Risorgimento; or about the family life of the Wagners; and, Brahms, who rose from the slums of Hamburg to become a devotee of beer and coffee in fin-de-siecle Vienna, a cultural capital bent on destroying Mahler...and much, much more.
