Music history is nearly as old as human civilization itself, and while it has
permeated the arts and popular culture for centuries, it still has this mystifying
aura surrounding it. But fear not—it’s not as complicated as it seems, and
anyone can learn the origins and history of Western art music. In addition to
learning how better to understand (and enjoy!) classical music, The History
of Classical Music For Beginners will help you learn of some of the more
interesting and sometimes comical stories behind the music and composers.
