Curious Connections: Master Musicians and the Law
What is the curious connection between these Master Musicians?
They all studied law. The Hon JB Thomas explores the connection between the disciplines of music and law, and the remarkable people who have been scholars of both.
“In this fascinating study Jim Thomas casts a judicial and musically judicious eye upon the lives and music of over thirty great composers with backgrounds in the law and in the process entertains, educates and gently provokes. There’s plenty here to beguile and inform the layman and the professional alike.”
Concert Pianist, London
Professor of piano and Honorary Member of the Royal Academy of Music.
