Description

Why is Chelsea so important to the Mozart story? Who really headlined at the first ever Glastonbury Festival? Which small Welsh village do Faure, Stravinsky and Prokofiev have in common? 'The Classical Music Map of Britain' is a charming and fascinating journey around the UK from a classical music perspective. Extensively researched and beautifully written, each entry explains why a particular site in Britain was so special to the composer in question, which pieces were composed there, and whether it is currently open to the public. Including hand-illustrated maps depicting key areas of interest, 'The Classical Music Map of Britain' is an enchanting adventure around some of our lesser-known landmarks - perfect for any lover of history or classical music, or those keen to discover a bit more about how music has shaped our country.
