In this fun and light-hearted book, see the world of classical music as it’s never been seen before.

Using flow charts, pie charts, Venn diagrams, checklists, graphs and other ingenious graphics, the Classic FM team have neatly represented Britain’s favourite pieces of classical music, musicians and composers, along with insights on orchestras, concert etiquette, and much more, in nearly 100 simple and amusing images.

Music fans will be delighted by this alternative representation of the classical music world, surprised by some of the connections, and, yes, taxed by the occasional puzzle – but immensely satisfied once they have worked them all out.

Published in partnership with Classic FM, this humorous collection is a must for both classical music fans and puzzle enthusiasts – it’s also a witty and fun gift for music lovers of all stripes.
