The quintessential primer for the budding classical music lover.

Millions of people adore classical music. Millions of other people want to, but simply don’t know how or where to start—so many composers, so many pieces, so many versions, so much music! In either case, this book is for you. In this informal and informative guide, Rudel leads listeners through the forty most essential and popular compositions from the Four Seasons to Rhapsody in Blue, explaining the musical structure of each passage and highlighting special themes or elements to listen for as the music continues. By the time you’re through with his guidance, the music is no longer just a jumbled mass of sound, but instead a stunning piece of music that’s as understandable and enjoyable as any rock ‘n’ roll song.
