Prion’s across the world bestselling intercourse Lives sequence provides lighthearted debts of the sexual escapades of significant figures in historical past, politics, faith, the humanities, and picture. Irreverent and gossipy, the books are full of carnal tidbits and eye-opening revelations. Liszt stumbled on groupies a hundred years earlier than Mick Jagger. It used to be adultery that consigned the amorous Amadeus to a pauper's grave, and syphilis that left Schubert's symphony unfinished. Father of 20 valid kids, Bach evidently didn't use the rhythm approach. In intercourse Lives of the nice Composers, Nigel Cawthorne explores the non-public lives of the main celebrated composers to bare how their sexuality encouraged and fired their prodigious musical creativity. From the rock stars in their day—Liszt and Chopin—to the tortured double lifetime of gay Tchaikovsky, intercourse Lives of the nice Composers leads its readers during the so much intimate info of the musical international.
