With a little help from some popular selfie apps, behold: classical music’s glammed-up greats, who have swapped their manuscripts for makeup brushes, and coated the concealer before taking to the concerto. And don’t they look sensational for it?
Ludwig van Bae-thoven
With blusher like that and lips that pop perfectly with his cravat, there’s no need for that sonata you’re penning to be so solemn, Ludwig.
His first symphony may have taken 21 years to write, but this creation was just a two-minute touch of blusher and lippy in the morning. And what a masterpiece.
Joseph, where have you been Haydn?
With this look, the father of the classical symphony is certainly standing out in the Austro-Hungarian crowd.
The must-have Gustav look...
With the alpine wind in his hair, a delicate touch of blusher completes Mahler’s uncharacteristically understated profile. When it comes to fashion, he takes his own Lied.
Clara, looking fab from concert-head... to concerto
The 19th century’s great composer and virtuoso, ready for a night on the Leipzig town.
Bringing sexy Bach
A little shading around the eyes, and some lipstick for the perfect Partita pout.
A look for all Seasons
Watch out Venice, the violin virtuoso is also a dab hand with the eye brush. You look incredible, Antonio Vivaldi!
Wolfgang Amadeus Moz–work–of–art
Così GLAM tutte. Doesn’t our Wolfie look fab?
