This delightful sequel takes readers around the world from Mozarts home in Salzburg to Chopins in Nohant, where he conducted a passionate affair with Georges Sand. Here are also the astonishing houses of great operatic composers: Richard Wagners Haus Wahnfried at Bayreuth (where Adolph Hitler was a frequent guest), Giacomo Puccinis luxurious villa at Torre del Lago, its walls still lined with photographs, or the Villa de SantAgata where Guiseppe Verdi wrote most of Nabucco, Othello, Rigoletto, and Aida. The author, Gerard Gefen, brilliantly links each of the composers houses, work and life in a beautiful, all-color book that was years in the making.
