In clear and entertaining prose, Plotkin explores a thousand years of music, introduces listeners to more than one hundred great works, and profiles in depth many significant composers, including Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Berlioz, Tchaikovsky, Dvok, and Mahler. He describes all the musical instruments in the orchestra, defines major musical terms, and makes music theory comprehensible for the uninitiated. There are also conversations with important musicians who offer fascinating insights about their art.
Classical Music 101 is a highly accessible guide to discovering the glories of classical music.
