Well, you would have foundd the analysis interesting if you were struggling through Music Theory. <Giggle> Cindy Lou ----- Original Message ----- From: "Grandma Cindy" <popularplace@xxxxxxxxx> To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Sunday, August 19, 2007 1:49 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: planning to scan for all us music fans out there, especially Rush fans I'd like to know more about composers. I've been meaning to read biographies of Tchaikovsky and Verdi--something I read about them intrigued me--it sounded as if they had interesting and perhaps scandalous lives. And certainly the Beethoven movie bio was interesting--and the Mozart one--and Wagner appears to have been someone interesting. My first bookshare job was validating an Aaron Copland biography. His life was interesting but the book had too much, for me, analysis and discussion of the music that I didn't find so interesting.
