year of wonder by pistache

year of wonder

this gorgeous book was given me on my birthday by two lovely friends who had heard about my desire (pre-covid) to educate myself about classical music, about which i am becoming increasingly enthusiastic as i get older. clemency burton-hill, who has an infectious passion, serves up a new piece for every day of the year, giving a layman's description of the composer and the music, setting both in the history of classical music, and explaining what it is she loves about the piece. i am hooked :) and this shot of the book is overlaid with some cherry blossom. because it's spring. and coronavirus can't stop that
So pleased to read this - serious classical leaves me cold but the usual, makes me smile and relax. What a wonderful book!

a stunning image and wonderful processing, love your narrative too. I grew up with classical music as my Mom was a classical piano player :-)
