Synopsis: Prion’s internationally bestselling Sex Lives series presents lighthearted accounts of the sexual escapades of major figures in history, politics, religion, the arts, and film. Irreverent and gossipy, the books are packed with carnal tidbits and eye-opening revelations. Liszt discovered groupies 100 years before Mick Jagger. It was adultery that consigned the amorous Amadeus to a pauper's grave, and syphilis that left Schubert's symphony unfinished. Father of 20 legitimate children, Bach plainly did not use the rhythm method. In Sex Lives of the Great Composers, Nigel Cawthorne explores the private lives of the most celebrated composers to reveal how their sexuality inspired and fired their prodigious musical creativity. From the rock stars of their day Liszt and Chopin to the tortured double life of homosexual Tchaikovsky, Sex Lives of the Great Composers leads its readers through the most intimate details of the musical world.

From the Publisher: Prion’s internationally best–selling Sex Lives series presents lighthearted accounts of the sexual escapades of major figures in history, politics, religion, the arts, and the Silver Screen. Irreverent and gossipy, the books are packed with carnal tidbits and eye–opening revelations.

Book Description Prion, 2004. Book Condition: New. Nigel Cawthorne investigates the place of sexuality in firing the musical imagination; he recounts the amorous escapades of 24 compositional geniuses, among them Percy Grainger's fondness for flagellation, the tortured double life of the homosexual Tchaikovsky, the proto-rock stars Liszt and Chopin who attracted 'groupies' avant la lettre and the church authorities' alarm at a 'strange maiden' who accompanied Bach into the organ loft.
