Titulo del libro: Historia Cómica De La Música
This book is a magnificent example that there are other ways to enjoy music apart from listening to it. We have here an elaborated and at the same time synthetic musical canon, with a description of eras, styles, composers and works, for a better understanding of this magnificent art. But all in a humorous vision that serves to bring closer to musicians and compositions. With the ingenuity that characterizes him, the author gives us a satirical vision of the great names of music, demystifying them with elegance and making them closer and more pleasant before our eyes.
