About this book
"...But Were Afraid To Ask". A richly informative, light-hearted guide to the highs and lows (sopranos and basses!) of classical music. A good read if you're unsure of the difference between an alto and a contralto, or if you've ever wondered how a trumpet's valves work or where Beethoven got his inspiration from, despite being profoundly deaf. Also charts the development of classical music through its composers and their eras.
