            Discover the fascinating people who created classical music's most significant works - from Mozart and Beethoven to Joaquin Rodrigo and Philip Glass. Introduced with a stunning portrait of each featured composer, more than 90 biographical entries trace the friendships, loves, and... rivalries that inspired each musical genius and their work. Profiles offer revealing insights into what drove each individual to create the musical masterpieces - symphonies, concertos and operatic scores - that changed the direction of classical music and are still celebrated as masterpieces today. Lavishly illustrated with paintings or photographs of each composer, alongside original musical scores and personal correspondence, images of their homes and where they worked, and personal effects and other important artefacts, the book introduces the key influences, themes, and working methods of each individual, setting their works within a wider historical and cultural context. Charting the development of classical music and music movements across the centuries, Composers provides a compelling glimpse into the personal lives, loves, and influences of the giants of the classical music canon.

            Friday on My Mind: The Life of George Young

            Friday on My Mind: The Life of George Young (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            From his early days with the Easybeats, through his collaboration with partner Harry Vanda as Flash and the Pan and as producers / songwriters for hire with John Paul Young, the Angels, Rose Tattoo, Cheetah, Ted Mulry, Stevie Wright and, most crucially, AC/DC, Young co-wrote, co-...performed and / or co-produced such classics as 'Friday on my Mind', 'Sorry', 'Love is in the Air', 'Evie', 'Yesterday's Hero', 'Down among the Dead Men', 'Hey St Peter', 'Bad Boy for Love', 'Jailbreak' and 'Long Way to the Top'. Young wasn't so much on the charts for the best part of three decades: he and Vanda were the charts. In 2001, APRA voted 'Friday on my Mind' as the 'best and most significant Australian song of the past 75 years.' In 2004, a cover of 1974's 'Evie' by Aussie 'supergroup' the Wrights, hit the number on chart position, a rare occurrence of the same song topping the charts twice. In this long overdue examination of the life and work of George Young, the first book to focus exclusively on him, writer Jeff Apter explores his three key relationships: Young's long and fruitful association with Vanda; his rare ability to maintain a stable married life with his wife Sandra; and the handshake deal with Ted Albert that helped create a music empire. The book also reveals such little-known facts as the accident that almost killed off 'Down among the Dead Men' before its release, and the full story about Vanda's wife's suicide, on the eve of the Easybeats' departure for the UK, which cast a large shadow over the pair throughout their working life.
