Having a basic appreciation for classical music is an important part of being a cultured person, but it may not feel like an approachable discipline. The host of Britain's much-loved Classic FM radio program, Tim Lihoreau offers here a fun and friendly crash course spanning half a millennium, with illustrated profiles of such composers as Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Tallis, Monteverdi, Brahms, Elgar, Handel, Verdi, Vivaldi and Strauss. Throughout the book, sound-chip buttons play clips of iconic pieces of music, and recommendations for further listening are included as well.
