sounds alot like Marquis de Sade and his sado-masochism and whatnot.

I still can't get over this though, lol

Maybe Gesualdo's peculiar harmonies had something to do with his chronic bowel troubles. According to one Don Ferrante della Marra, writing in 1632, Gesualdo was unable to defecate "unless ten or twelve men, whom he kept specially for the purpose, were to beat him violently three times a day, during which operation he was wont to smile joyfully." That probably explains everything.[/b]

Yes, that's what I heard too. but you must understand the meaning of "cousin". Cause sometimes they mean lik second and third cousins, who were almost no family of each other - don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it was right, but it wasn't like me marrying my mother's brother's son, you know? or not always.
They want to make it sound that way with just using the word "cousin".

Or am I totally out of line here? [/b]
Well, i don't know about the others but Natalia Satina was definitely Rachmaninov's first cousin - but im sure alot of the others were second and third cousins.
