The Classical Music Experience:
The Ultimate Listener's Guide!
There are many books about classical music, but none capture the incredible range of musical styles and sounds as accessibly or in as compelling a way as The Classical Music Experience.
The Classical Music Experience tells the stories of forty-two of the world's most celebrated composers, ranging from Bach, Handel, Mozart and Beethoven to Mahler, Tchaikovsky, Gershwin and Bernstein. It weaves five hundred years of history and music into a rich tapestry of sound and story unlike any other book of its kind.
Read about the composers' lives and works, their passions and inspirations, and then listen to excerpts of their music on the accompanying CDs. In addition to the pieces covered in the book, Dr. Julius H. Jacobson gives recommendations of further works you may wish to listen to and explore on your own.
This is a volume to cherish and to return to again and again as you build your own classical music library and venture out to the symphony hall.
"Every beginner needs a place to begin. For a music lover, what better place to discover more about music than between the pages of another music lover's book? The Classical Music Experience makes it easy by taking you through the history of classical music composer by composer."
