Mad About Music

The Youth of Great Composers
They were all mad about music, whether they came from poor or rich families, whether they were early stars or found their way to music at a later stage in life. Ulrich Rühle describes the childhood and youth of great composers, their first steps into the world of music, their excitement and their success, but also discloses the great disappointments they had to overcome until they made their way and found their characteristic style.

Not everything in the composers' childhoods indicated that they would become famous, and it was often the case that, as children, their talents were used to contribute to their families financially. And sometimes their parents had quite different plans for them...

Ulrich Rühle has written a new preface that also addresses the difficult situation for female composers.

The composers:
Johann Sebastian Bach
Georg Friedrich Händel
Joseph Haydn
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Ludwig van Beethoven
Franz Schubert
Richard Wagner
Carl Maria von Weber
