“Informal, raucous and sometimes scandalous, the heroes of classical music are often far from the composed images they're portrayed as. Take a walk in the shoes of 20 original rock stars from the last millennium and find out what it really takes to write a timeless classical hit.“

Raising the Roof: a Dazzling History of Classical Music introduces key concepts and colourful composers from the world of classical music to young readers.
