Review:

This is a beautifully wrought introduction to classical music, aimed squarely at the neophyte and replete with time lines and lots of handsome photographs. It is accompanied by a 70+ minute compact disc with musical snippets to illustrate the text. It is a companion volume to Waugh's Opera: A New Way of Listening.
