Do you know a capella from zarzuela? Can you distinguish between a serenade and a symphony? If you only have 30 seconds, there is time-using this book-to understand the creative journey taken by classical music from the Middle Ages to the modern era. From plainsong to program music, appreciate the passion and the pathos of sounds that have the power to stir our emotions to joy or sadness. Here's music to your ears.
