Product Description

Written by 90-year-old music aficionado Homi Dastoor, this book has a Foreword written by the internationally renowned conductor Zubin Mehta. Musical Journeys covers the life and times of 34 composers (each handpicked to represent some notable innovation he brought to his times), all the way from Palestrina born in 1525 to Stravinsky passing away in 1971. Besides a wealth of unusual details on some of the greatest composers the world has seen, the book also offers useful notes on their select and celebrated works, besides invaluable friendly advice recommending how best readers may start building that critical first individual collection of Western Classical music. The edition is sumptuously illustrated with 160 rare archival images - illustrations, lithographs and photographs - from the nonagenarian author's collection. This remarkable book is a personal introduction to western classical composers. Homi Dastoor describes each composer's musical lineage, with the major moments in their life history explained.
