I object to the statement that Szymanowski "was strictly speaking a bisexual," which the biographer bases on the fact that he had strong friendships with several women. Other books I have read refer more directly to the composer's sexual orientation.
The book would be more believable if Szymanowski's homosexuality had been discussed openly.
Good number of photographs are included.
