    Why Beethoven Threw The Stew Written By Steven Isserlis

    “If Why Beethoven Threw the Stew does not turn your child into a music lover, the chances are nothing will.” Daily Mail

    In Why Beethoven Threw the Stew, renowned cellist Steven Isserlis sets out to pass on to children a wonderful gift given to him by his cello teacher - the chance to people his world with the great composers by getting to know them as friends. Witty and informative at the same time, Isserlis introduces us to six of his favourite composers: the sublime genius Bach, the quicksilver Mozart, Beethoven with his gruff humour, the shy Schumann, the prickly Brahms and that extraordinary split personality, Stravinsky. Isserlis brings the composers alive in a compelling manner that can't fail to catch the attention of any child whose ear has been caught by any of the music described or anyone entering the world of classical music for the first time. The lively black-and-white line illustrations perfectly accompany the text and make this book attractive and accessible for children to enjoy on their own or share with an adult.
