Classical music is amazing and the more you know about the composer and the piece of music the more you can appreciate it. I just came across an amazing resource that everyone should be interested in:

Naxos Books is a diverse and forward-thinking imprint, which embraces both popular and specialist titles within the world of classical music. Its hallmark is the groundbreaking fusion of words and music, drawing on the extensive list of Naxos classical recordings to provide a ‘multimedia’ take on traditional book publishing. The majority of its mainstream books include CDs and websites where readers can listen to many hours of relevant music. Its broad scope mirrors the success that Naxos has achieved with its music CDs, from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to the ‘Naxos’ Quartets of Peter Maxwell Davies.

If anyone is thinking of buying me a gift then please consider the following books :)
