The History of Classical Music
Read by Robert Powell
From Gregorian Chant to Henryk Gorecki, the first living classical composer to get into the pop album charts, here is the fascinating story of over a thousand years of Western classical music and the composers who have sought to express in music the deepest of human feelings and emotions. Polyphony, sonata form, serial music – many musical expressions are also explained – with the text illustrated by performances from some of the most highly praised recordings of recent years. From Gregorian chant to Stravinsky and Gorecki, 150 musical excerpts illustrate the narrative.
