    This book is all about having a fun, easy read while learning about the lives of these great composers. Not in depth but quite good for all ages.

    Very well written and exceptionally entertaining! Steven Isserlis has done a great job writing in such a way that the reader experiences the same humanity as the subject they are reading about!

    I’ve loved Stephen Isserlis’ work as a cellist for a long time, but this book (and the previous volume, Why Beethoven Threw the Stew) are fantastic. Not necessarily for young children (the teacher or parent should read these first to determine what parts of the book are suitable for a particular age) but certainly fascinating…I reread this after we were done reading it together.

    Isserlis’ scholarship and care was clear, and his voice well-defined…and his passion as a musician and for the stories of these men and their music. Also….there is a great sense of pacing.

    If you love this or its predecessor, then also type in Isserlis on youtube and you’ll find some small performances and “lectures” he gave to children. Adorable. He’s definitely got a natural wig of his own. (:
