Notes

"Revel in over an hour of seductive classics by eight of the world's greatest composers who just happen to be gay."

Excerpt from liner notes:
If you search through the standard music encyclopedias, dictionaries, and biographies for some mention of homosexuality, you will come up nearly empty-handed. That omission is all the more peculiar in classical music, for many of the greatest composers - from Handel and Schubert to Copland and Bernstein - were gay. Yet a quaint, almost Victorian reticence has prevailed until recently in the academic field of musicology, as if the mere mention of a composer's homosexuality were enough to besmirch his posthumous reputation.
