Michelle Kerns, March 2011

This audio production sounds so incredibly hoity but, believe me, it’s a treasure. Starting with the earliest known musical forms, the narration explains what characterizes each period of music and details the lives of prominent composers alongside excerpts of some of their pieces. Best of all, each new step in musical development in placed in historical context. Sounds dry but it isn’t.

Fabulous Offering of the NAXOS music library collection through the Toronto Public Library (membership needed): HENLEY, D.: Story of Classical Music (The) (Unabridged) (US version)

Beautiful and brisk way of introducing the evolution of classical music. Brisk because I suppose children have to listen to it
