Book Description

The eagerly awaited follow-up to the best-selling Why Beethoven Threw the Stew.

What did Haydn's wife use for curling-paper for her hair?

What did Schubert do with his old spectacles case?

Why was Dvorák given a butcher's apron when he was a little boy?

Why did Tchaikovsky spit on a map of Europe?

Why did Fauré find a plate of spinach on his face?

And why did Handel waggle his wig?

In Why Beethoven Threw the Stew, renowned cellist Steven Isserlis set out to pass on to children a wonderful gift given to him by his own cello teacher - the chance to people his own world with the great composers by getting to know them as friends. In his new book he draws us irresistibly into the world of six more favourite composers, bringing them alive in a manner that cannot fail to catch the imagination of children encountering classical music for the first time. Once again the text is packed with facts, dates and anecdotes, interspersed with lively black-and-white line illustrations, making this an attractive and accessible read for children to enjoy on their own or share with an adult.

'If Why Beethoven Threw the Stew does not turn your child into a music lover, the chances are nothing will.' Daily Mail

5.0 out of 5 stars Why Handel Waggled his Wig 23 May 2006
Format:Paperback
This book was fantastic. I read it straight through & it took me about a week, & once I was done, I missed it -A sign of a good book. From this book, you will learn about the lives of 6 wonderful composers, exicting new vocabulary and what to do with your granny when you're bored. Steven brings the charcters to life in a way that anybody can enjoy it. However, that said, I would recomend this to anybody above the age of 10. I liked the choice of composers as well. One thing that is a bit surprising is that I still don't know why Handel waggled ihs wig.
