      I'm listening to this on CD. It is fantastic. I love the history and abbreviated biographies that include interesting facts. Bach loved music so much he once walked 231 miles, each way, to see a concert. The music is wonderful, of course, and they only include snippets which ensures kids get an exposure to the famous pieces but don't lose focus. I'm listening to it on my own, but I plan to put this into the CD player on the next family road trip! This is really worth listening to at least twice! [...]

      I'm not sure I would've listened to this audio if it hadn't been offered free for limited time. However I did find that I really enjoyed this. I Have been a fan of classical music ever since I was in the band in high school and I really enjoyed listening to some of my favorite pieces and trying to identify the titles and composers.

    3. Rachel Ban says:

      Marin Alsop the fabulous music director for the Baltimore Symphony is the narrator of this audio book. She is all about making classical music accessible so narrating Henley's book was a perfect match.

    4. Gil Bradshaw says:

      THis book is best in its audio format downloaded from audible. Preferably in format 4. It is SUCH a great primer on classical music.

    5. Cathy Kristiansen says:

      A challenging task to cover the long evolution of classical music, probably best for someone with a solid grounding but a novice would do well to re-listen many times. This nice audiobook covered the topic quite well, with fine samples. Ideally, this book would have been 60 hours long, allowing each sample played in full!

    6. Chad King says:

      Enjoyable overview of classical music. Great listen for kids.

      The Story of Classical Music by Darren HenleyThis is an extraordinary…I do not know what to call it- is it a book? Or a production of a book?It is an audio book, which makes the whole difference between a joy to listen to and a difficult read. Recently, I tried to go through a similar venture, but in print: An Introduction to Music.It was way less satisfying than the present, wonderful audiobook.It is one to talk or write about Beethoven and a whole different ball game, when you exemplify.The [...]

    8. Nathalie S says:

      I loved this book so much that I listened to it back to back in my van. The author reveals many anecdotes which really brings the book to life such as when Bach, as a youth, once walked 200 plus miles to listen to an organist that he particularly admired. Then walk back of course. Cray-cray! The author includes 150 musical excerpts of all these composers. It's like being let loose in a pastry shop and tasting all the pastries! Reader Marin Alsop does a great job keeping you engaged in the story, [...]

      Great introduction to classical music. I'm amazed at how many recordings they were able to use. This is an audiobook that goes beyond the traditional book format - as you hear the various descriptions of composers over the centuries, the narration is accompanied by excerpts of their music. It's a great way to become familiar with new music and match up familiar tunes with the history of the author.

    10. Edwin B says:

      The best about this audiobook history of classical music from the Renaissance to the 20th century is listening to snippets from the compositions of the masters - Handel, Bach, Vivaldi, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Paganini, Schubert, Chopin, Mendelsshon, Liszt, Schumann, Brahms, Wagner, Verdi, Strauss, Bizet, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Debussy, Puccini, Mahler, Rachmaninov, Schoenberg, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Gershwin, Bernstein, and many others.

    11. Patricia says:

      Downloaded this book from the library. The best format for this book is audio since it has examples of the classical piece along with the narration. I love classical music and the author had details about various composers that were new to me. He started out with the monks and the Gregorian chants all the way up to modern music and movie soundtracks, which are classical pieces in many respects. Really interesting and I highly recommend it.

    12. Dinesh Jayaraman says:

      Good intro to the important composers and compositions through the history of western classical music. Not a fan of the audiobook format, but it's a good format for this material, for obvious reasons. I expected a little more on the evolution of techniques and styles of music, but it mostly stuck to the stories of composers and their famous compositions.

    13. Scott Diamond says:

      This was a fun audio book. Good reader, interesting facts about the time period and a great selection of music. I really enjoyed the listening journey. I only wish it had more discussion of the kind of music each composer wrote. It was hard for me to pick up what differentiated composers just based on hearing an audio snippet.

    14. Heather says:

      This was a fun guide through classical music for young listeners. The best part was hearing samples of music from the great composers, I recognized a lot of the music.The author did seem to 'speak down' to the listener, and some of the sound bits were annoying-but otherwise it was fine.

    15. Celeste says:

      Interesting information, but I felt each story or event was quite brief and not as in depth as I would have liked. Seemed a little rudimentary to me; like it was just surface material, and nothing deeper.

    16. Matthew Thornton says:

      Listening to it and liking the broad overview and historical context that it gives for understanding classical music. Very good for kids and those approaching this genre for the first time.

    17. Phillip Stewart says:

      Excellent audiobook with 150 great music clips covering the history of classical music.

    18. Vanessa says:

      Quick read and I really enjoyed hearing the history and context for the music I know and love! (Plus the audiobook version includes clips of the music discussed!)

    19. Rich says:

      A simplified overview of the history if classical music. I listened to the audio book which has great samples of the music throughout. I listened to the book twice.

    20. KayG says:

      Excellent intro to classical music - for someone wanting a good lightweight history of music. On

    21. Mignon De Klerk says:

      This is a great audiobook for a long road trip with kids - we all loved it.

    22. Anna says:

      Great, kid-friendly intro to the history of classical music from Gregorian chant to modern movie scores. I was surprised and pleased by how many composers were included!

    23. Steven says:

      Nice little survey of classical literature. The narrator tells about the development which are illustrated with snippets of music.

    24. Leroy Brookens says:

      I listened to this 4 times!
