Beschreibung

Great music is a language unto its own, a means of communication of unmatched beauty and genius. And it has an undeniable power to move us in ways that enrich our lives - provided it is understood.
If you have ever longed to appreciate great concert music, to learn its glorious language and share in its sublime pleasures, the way is now open to you, through this series of 48 wonderful lectures designed to make music accessible to everyone who yearns to know it, regardless of prior training or knowledge. It's a lecture series that will enable you to first grasp music's forms, techniques, and terms - the grammatical elements that make you fluent in its language - and then use that newfound fluency to finally hear and understand what the greatest composers in history are actually saying to us.
And as you learn the gifts given us by nearly every major composer, you'll come to know there is one we share with each of them - a common humanity that lets us finally understand that these were simply people speaking to us, sharing their passion and wanting desperately to be heard. Using digitally recorded musical passages to illustrate his points, Professor Greenberg will take you inside magnificent compositions by Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Verdi, Wagner, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, and more. Even if you have listened to many of these illustrative pieces throughout your life - as so many of us have - you will never hear them the same way again after experiencing these lectures.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Hilfreichste

Ohren öffnend!

Musik ist auf erneuerte Weise in mein Leben heimgekehrt. Habe den Kurs in drei Wochen gehört, und viel Musik dazu. Wirklich empfehlenswert, auch das Englisch leicht verständlich. Mangel: die entsprechenden musikalischen Fachbegriffe auf Deutsch für Laien oft schwer zu eruieren. Waheo König.

A History of Music and Composition

Very interesting and amusing lectures on classical wester music and composition,
that inspire and get you hooked on the concepts and complexity of classical music.

Only the speakers conclusions on the interaction between language and music are a
bit twisted due to the author/speakers strong accent, that is rather an interpretation of
the languages.
