Summary

Classical music was never meant to be an art for snobs!

In the 1700s and 1800s, classical music was popular music. People went to concerts with their friends, they brought snacks and drinks, and cheered right in the middle of the concert.

Well, guess what? Three hundred years later, that music is just as catchy, thrilling, and emotional.

From Bach to Mozart and Chopin, history's greatest composers have stood the test of time and continue to delight listeners from all walks of life. And in Classical Music For Dummies, you'll dive deeply into some of the greatest pieces of music ever written. You'll also get:

  • A second-by-second listening guide to some of history's greatest pieces, annotated with time codes
  • A classical music timeline, a field guide to the orchestra, and listening suggestions for your next foray into the classical genre
  • Expanded references so you can continue your studies with recommended resources
  • Bonus online material, like videos and audio tracks, to help you better understand concepts from the book

Classical Music For Dummies is perfect for anyone who loves music. It's also a funny, authoritative guide to expanding your musical horizons—and to learning how the world's greatest composers laid the groundwork for every piece of music written since.
