In ’94 Bukowski wasn’t granted another spring, but he left his tools here. No other influential writer has left us such a reliable record of the music he listened to and his opinion of it.
Through 50 excerpts of poems related to classical music, Bukowski brings us the gospel of symphonic music like a reverend waving a gun around. Through 50 related Spotify links to legendary recordings that gave heart to his life, you can explore classical music in an unusual way.
If you’re somehow under the impression that classical music is for sissies, you better buckle up ’cause Sweet Baby Jesus you’ve got another thing coming...
A single Spotify playlist containing highlights of all 50 recordings can be found HERE.
