Here are some unusual facts concerning famous composers:
Whenever he was conducting, Tchaikovsky always held his chin with his left hand because he was afraid his head might fall off.
Liszt received so many letters asking for a lock of his hair that he bought a dog and sent his admirers a piece of the dog’s fur.
Beethoven was once arrested while out walking because he was thought to be a tramp. He was rescued by the village music teacher, who immediately recognised him and confirmed to the police that he was indeed the person he claimed to be.
