Publisher's Summary

To appreciate the beauty of great works of music, we must be familiar with the lives of the geniuses who composed them. For in the personalities and life-stories of great composers is the key to their masterpieces.

Here are vivid stories of men who dreamed, struggled and suffered so that they might give expression to their divine gifts. And here are also frank stories of human beings, many of whom lived exciting lives of romance and adventure. These are Living biographies and they have the fascination of fiction illumined and strengthened with the permanent appeal of historical fact.

Nice mini-biographies, but...

No music. I was hoping the narration (which is okay, not great) would be broken up now and again with samples from the composers' works.
