I happened to have just finished a book on classical music, and therefore some pieces are still floating around in my mind. Reading this little young adult book by Ibbotson with such music still retained was certainly relaxing. I pictured Vienna, the name of streets, of places and buildings that I once visited, though briefly, and so on. The problem is, I do not know how to distinguish, such result was due to the effectiveness of the book or simply to my mood, my own experience?
Anyway, it is a comfortable read, even without the charming background, without the mention of various composers and their works, in Classical, Romantic, or even Modern era, though it is definitely a bonus.
