  3. Dee Maselle

    Surprisingly absorbing Colorful, accessible synopses of composers personal lives, habits, and scandals, most of which I hadn t known even a hint before Their extremely human life experiences make me want to dig into their oeuvres again or for the first time I did wish for race and gender diversity, and I m going to do some research among the greats to see whom else the authors might have incorporated.

  4. Elisa Jones

    Okay, if you have ever heard of than three famous composers, you need to read this book This highlights 20 ish of the noted composers of all timebut not with the typical historical perspective Rather, it is commentary on how their habits shaped their lives, and what the neighbors observed of their frequently uncanny behavior After reading this book, I never listened to or performed Chopin or Stravinsky the same way again.

    An incredible book for the young aspiring musician, as well as the seasoned musician We checked this out at our library over 5 times in a row and when we finally had to return it, I put it on my book list to purchase My 8 year old daughter loves it and has read it cover to cover many times.

  6. Karen

    This is a great book We had to return it to the library so I found a used copy and bought it on Wonderful book to use throughout the year when we do unit studies on each of the musicians.

  7. Elaine

    We checked this out of our city library to find out facts about Peter Tchaikovsky, who turns out to have been a very quirky fellow I went on to read this and loved sharing the things I learned about the nineteen different composers.

    Another in Kathleen Krull s series of interesting famous people It is just such a choice little book Again, the art work by Kathryn Hewitt is just as good as the information given us by Krull Being a musician myself, and especially interested in the lives of composers, I was surprised at how many things I learned about so many of these people.I also love that Krull includes as many women as she can, even early in history For instance, she opted to include Clara Schumann rather than her husband R [...]

  11. Liz

    Twenty different musicians, from Vivaldi and Bach to Gershwin and Woody Guthrie, are profiled with Krull s chatty but respectful treatment Little known facts about the different musicians flesh them out and make them all the human to the reader The selection is diverse and, in addition to the expected classical composers, Krull profiles Scott Joplin, Woody Guthrie and Nadia Boulanger, a 20th century composer and conductor whose teaching influenced many modern composers Hewitt s color drawings d [...]

  12. David

    Kathleen Krull has written a fun book targeted towards children, with fun caricature illustrations, about the lives of various composers and other musicians ranging mostly from the famous Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Chopin, etc plus some surprisingly overlooked entries Clara Schumann, Stephen Foster, Nadia Boulanger Three to five pages are devoted to each of the nineteen musicians with nice summaries and interesting trivia for each Only real complaint some glaring omissions Josquin de [...]

  13. Marcia

    Another in Krull s Lives of the series I ve enjoyed the writers and presidents volumes and wondered how the book would translate as an audio when I saw it available as a digital download on Overdrive Well, you lose the great caricature illustrations that are part of the fun of these books But, you gain snippets of each musician s work Bach, Vivaldi to Joplin and Seeger which was nice Fun, short biographical snippets hold your attention The main fact I walked away with from this book was that the [...]

  14. Megan

    I picked this up for my fourth grader and ended up reading it all in one sitting myself Delightfully interesting and succinct, this is a great book for both kids and adults I ve read the author s biography for children of Frank Oz as well and thought it was ok This was better Now I m interested in reading of this series, and of Krull s work in general The illustrations were nice too, and I loved that each composer was given a nickname or memory prompt above his her name to start the chapters H [...]

  15. Chris

    I m a Krull fan since reading her short bios on Freud, Newton and DiVinci This collection of short, four miniute profiles of twenty musical heavyweights was enlightening and entertaining for all of us in the Rygh family The girls enjoyed learning that Beethoven liked Mac and Cheese And who knew that Gilbert and Sullivan one of the most famous creative teams of all time didn t speak to one another and never worked together Satie, Boulanger and Prokofiev were new to me After reading listening to t [...]

  16. Christina

    I was a public library book sale when I saw this book I bought the because I was going to give it to my music teacher After reading the book, I decided to give the book to the music teacher, but with reservations I warned her of my concerns, so that parents don t call about the conent of the book I would know your population before buying this book It talks of how the composers are grumpy, and how a few of the composers were alcoholics.

  17. Yasmin Gomez Geng

    This book covers a variety of classical musicians, both men and women, composers and piano players Each person, gets about two pages of information about their life At the end of each chapter are some notes on what their famous music is, and other interesting facts.Grade 2nd Grade 5th GradeTopic Music, Musicians, History, Important People,

  18. Barbara

    This is a great compilation of famous musicians and their life story Each musician gets a couple of pages which hit all the high points in a kid friendly way It s a perfect book to get to know famous composers and for young kids who write reports about famous people Plus the illustrated photos of each artists are very well done.

  19. Joy

    At her keynote address at Spicola, Kathleen Krull talked about how she does research on all her subjects, looking for stuff about famous people that kids can relate to I was a music minor and I just learned a bunch about my favorite composers This was such a great book.The bit about Beethoven liking mac and cheese was apparently in a footnote somewhere.

  20. Teri

    This book was part of Joseph s curriculum this year The subtitle Good Times, Bad Times and What the Neighbors Thought caught my attention A perfect introduction to some of the most famous composers because it is brief, well written, and full of the facts most of us love to hear It accomplishes what I think any such short volume should it made me want to learn .

  21. Tori

    2008 Quick read I picked up one day at the middle school when I had nothing to read The snippets on each musician are informative and interesting Would suggest adding a few to the mix Also, would be nice if the author laid out, right after discussing a musician, places to read about them.

  22. Michael DiPaolo

    I wish I had this book when I was growing up Maybe I would have appreciated music I love the simplicity with which the author has described these master composers Cartoon pictures of each one, a short bio, and a list of their most famous compositions make this a new favorite of mine for all children to introduce them to classical music.

  23. Kristen Mohr

    I wanted to rate this book higher, but I find it unconscionable that only 10% of the entries were women and then neither were composers but were mostly famous from their association with men I want books like this for children to be better Disappointing.

  24. Jenifer

    These are really short picture books that are just darling to look at and read Suitable for children yet interesting enough for adults, they are by no means comprehensive, just plain fun And check this out Shumann is a woman Who knew

  25. Annm

    A book meant for kids, but I found it engaging, and on a topic I am interested in I d like to find a comprehensive book on lives of famous musicians though, and it looks like there are some available.

  26. Brenda

    Lots of text with interesting facts about the composers This book is probably better for older elementary students.

  27. Luis Martinez

    Great book about unknown facts, and beautiful illustrations.I am buying Lives of the Scientists and Lives of the Athletes
