Smart Guide to Classical Music

Smart Guide to Classical Music
$18.95
You're a smart person but you don't know a lot about classical music because they didn't teach it in your school. Still, you know something about classical music, whether it's the "da-da-da-dum" opening of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony or that a famous shaggy dog was named after that same composer. But when it comes to knowing your Vivaldi from your Berlioz, you find it less stressful to tune your radio to something more contemporary. If you like classical music but don't quite know why, this book is for you. And if you love classical music but are afraid to admit it because you really don't understand what it's all about, this book is also for you. The Smart Guide To Classical Music shows you how easy it is to understand, enjoy and appreciate classical music - from recognizing musical pieces to distinguishing one composer from another. Here you'll find practical, down-to-earth information in plain English. In this Smart Guide you get: Simple definitions of intimidating music jargon. Tips on how to listen to classical music and identify musical instruments. Fascinating anecdotes on the composers. How to untangle the seemingly complicated web of classical music. How to feel comfortable at a classical music concert or opera performance.
