The book, DISSONANCES- Cartoons about Music is a collection of older and newer cartoons related to music, audience and music lovers.


Various virtuoso musicians, singers, soloists and dazzling instrumentalists are the main charachters in the snapshots from the drawing pen. The cartoons illustrate varied rehearsels and lively concert performances. The respected audience looks on, mostly with dedication an enthusiasm, sometimes busy with other things.
