so many in 4 reviews

Because composers wrote in so many genres, it's easy for players to only know the pieces which pertain to them, and miss huge numbers of extremely important works by their most influential composers.

However, I learned a lot, and am really grateful for your effort to put together a course in which you presented so many great composers in an attractive fashion to a large public, without losing the grandeur of the music.

And so many demos.

chamber music in 3 reviews

Has given me tools for a better understanding of chamber music and appreciate various stages of the history of composers and the works we have reviewed.

The chamber music with it's roots in class system of societies has always troubled me with it's wigs and powders and halls with exclusive acoustics.

I would heartily recommend the course to anyone with even a remote interest in classical music, whether they play an instrument or listen for pleasure and certainly defy anyone not to come away delighted and enlightened.

A magnificent course on a critical area of classical music.
