"The book is full of informative and amusing facts, making it a light and pleasurable read, with good synopses and some tongue-in-cheek remarks."
(Music Teacher, February 2004)
"Love it - its stuffed full of great dinner party stories. Don't know whether to model myself on Debussy, and have lots of lovers killing themselves for me, or Vivaldi and his travelling menage a trois. But the Massenet pun is awful."

"Don't be fooled by the size of this book - it's absolutely packed full of facts about classical music. I've been a fan of Classic FM for years and now have an extensive CD library and regularly attend concerts. I've learnt all sorts of gems from the book - and it even made me smile too. I'm buying copies for a couple of my friends who are interested in getting into classical music because I think they'll enjoy it just as much as an old hand like me."

"I never knew that there was so much I didn't know about classical music. Every page has a great nugget of information. The way it's written means that these stories really stick in your mind...it's the antithesis of my music lessons at school!"
