Synopsis: [Read by Simon Vance]
[Includes a Bonus PDF: The Story of Music Playlist]

Music is an intrinsic part of everyday life, and yet the history of its development from single notes to multilayered orchestration can seem bewilderingly complex. -- In his dynamic tour through forty thousand years of music, from prehistoric instruments to modern-day pop, Howard Goodall leads us through the story of music as it happened, idea by idea, so that each musical innovation--harmony, notation, sung theater, the orchestra, dance music, recording--strikes us with its original force. Along the way, he also gives refreshingly clear descriptions of what music is and how it works: what scales are all about, why some chords sound discordant, and what all postwar pop songs have in common. -- The story of music is the story of our urge to invent, connect, rebel--and entertain. Howard Goodall's beautifully clear and compelling account is both a hymn to human endeavor and a groundbreaking map of our musical journey.

About the Author: Howard Goodall is an Emmy, Brit, and BAFTA Award-winning composer of choral music, stage musicals, and film and television scores and a distinguished broadcaster. In recent years he has been England's first ever National Ambassador for Singing, the Classical Brit Composer of the Year, and Classic FM's Composer-in-Residence. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the 2011 New Year Honors for services to music education.
