Composer of the month: May

The catalogue of classical music is massive. It’s hard to know where to start. Over the past couple of years I have been listening on and off to pieces in a mostly random way. But I still really didn’t know anything about them, or about their composers.

As part of this journey into the classical world I decided to immerse myself in one composer a month. Each week I’ll look at a popular or interesting piece and the story around them. It’ll be their story and my story. Stay tuned.

May’s composer is the man who hooked me into this new world,
