This is so interesting...

This is fascinating.  Rachmaninov was really tall.  Wonder if he had a growth-related problem that may also have contributed to his depression.  AMC thought Wagner was much taller since he was a "towering figure." Recent books have indicated that Ravel was a bit strange, but not in the context of the times in which he lived.  He apparently had no romantic relationships in his life.  A recent book described Prokofiev in less than flattering terms.  He was characterized as being nasty to people, especially his wife.  AMC has no idea how that relates to him being 6'3".  Grieg was sort of petite.  Fun stuff.  See here for article:
