The Classic FM Musical Treasury : A Curious Collection of New Meanings for Old Words Hardback

Description

There are all sorts of people, events and sounds that exist in the musical world for which there are no words.

We have been sadly bereft of a satisfactory way to describe the contortion of a singer's mouth when reaching for the high notes; the audience member who leaves a concert halfway through the grand finale; or that person who places one finger in their ear and raises their eyes heavenwards when they sing.; Tim Lihoreau neatly solves this problem in The Classic FM Musical Treasury.

Having scoured the UK for place names with a musical bent, he has created a charming collection of humorously inventive, musically themed meanings.

From choral singing to rock concerts, opera and orchestras, this quirky book will delight music fans everywhere.
