Based on Classic FM's highly successful Composers' Notes radio series, this book gives you the ins and outs of composers' cashflow.
We've all heard sad tales of impoverished composers - Mozart's final resting place a pauper's grave, Beethoven arrested as a tramp, so shabby were his clothes. But is it all true? Is the composer's lot one of endless misery? Vivaldi ended up destitute but allegedly earned and squandered around £1.6 million. True or false? Buy the book to find the answers!
