Composer and conductor Eugene Goossens III and his four exceptionally talented siblings (celebrated oboist Leon, acclaimed harpists Marie and Sidonie, and the gifted horn-player, Adolphe) have made a major contribution to classical music in the course of their several distinguished careers. This first full-length biography of the Goossen family is a compelling saga of complex personal relationships, scandals, and tragedies that provide a fascinating backdrop to the world of classical music.
