In this classic volume, now published by Routledge, he portrays a surreal and humorous world of medicinal music, musical schizophrenia, conductorless orchestras, suing seals, cat operas, musical beds and more. Slonimsky regales the reader with tales of Mozart, Beethoven, Rossini and the other expected Classical Music figures: the ugly ducking of Russian music, the Kafka of modern music and other sublime misfits. First published in 1948, this book has earned well-deserved acclaim for being insightful, witty and enthralling.

Illustrations by Robert Bonotto complete this collection of musical vignettes.
