An Essential New Introduction To The Love Music Of The Great Composers!

"Love cannot express the idea of music, while music may give an idea of love"  - Romantic composer Hector Berlioz

From the creator of Swoon comes an enthralling introduction to the great love music of the classical composers. Experience music from 10 composers, from the passionate arias of Puccini and Mozart to the intimacy of Satie's Gymnopedies and Chopin's Nocturnes, and the extraordinary orchestral colours of Schumann, Debussy and Brahms.

This is music at its most eloquent, written to seduce, to capture the ineffable highs and – perhaps most often – to overcome the excruciating blows of love.

As Lawrence himself puts it, "the sounds of these composers are a poignant counterpoint to the tales of their stuttering dreams. Therein lie the real truths of these lives – and ours. For when it comes to putting a little love into your day, classical music does the best job of all."

This 2CD set accompanies the major new book Symphony of Seduction by ABC Classic FM's Christopher Lawrence.
