    Hand-picked favourites
    National treasure and clever clogs Stephen Fry provides a riotous, rambling and rather potted history of classical music in this must-read book.

    Covering 700 years, Stephen throws in references to pretty much anything he wants as he tells how classical music came to soundtrack the nation. Along the way, he'll mention the Mongol invasion of Russia and Genghis Khan, the Black Death and the revolutionary atmosphere of Mozart's Don Giovanni.

    Beethoven, Bach, Debussy, Wagner, Mozart... all the key players are featured in this endlessly entertaining read about classical music and so much more.
