Tim Lihoreau: Classic FM - Composers Notes
Published in association with Classic FM, the book of the radio series of the same name, this book takes 27 composers from Bachand Haydn to Rachmaninov and Gershwin, and looks at their financial success (or lack thereof) in a biographical context. It includes a 'rich list' of all 27 composers, from the most solvent (Gershwin) to the least (Mussorgsky).
John Suchet and Tim Lihoreau present a fantastic book that follows the financial successes and disasters of the great composers. Based on the Classic FM's highly successful Composers' Notes radio series, Tim Lihoreau's informative book lists the ins and outs of composers' cash-flow, the classical composers' rich list and just who ended up in paupers' graves and who were the classical music cash kings!
