A book where music is very present, that speaks to us above all of emotions and feelings: the love of life.

Ramon Gener is one of the great musical educators of our time, who has triumphed on television with his programme 'This is Opera'. On 22 December 2013, Ramon Gener lost his father after a long illness. Las Moiras, personifications of fate, guide Gener on a musical journey that reveals itself to be a true catharsis until the cycle is closed in a circular fashion. Time and space allow us to visit the great names in music and literature, who help the author bear the pain of loss with music alongside the protagonist. The author takes us to see Giuseppe Verdi in the process of omposing Nabucco. We visit Maria Callas, and watch as Clara Schumann bids her final farewell to Johannes Brahms. We encounter Joaquín Rodrigo in his room in the Latin Quarter on one of the most difficult nights of his life, which led him to compose Concierto de Aranjuez.

"El amor te hará inmortal is a book full of anecdotes of musicians but, above all, of emotions and feelings that have been triggered by death. It is the desire to escape from a hole that sooner or later and on several occasions, will swallow us all." Libros y Literatura
