Summary
"Music history is nearly as old as human civilization itself, and while it has permeated the arts and popular culture for centuries , it still has a mystifying aura. But fear not- classical music is not as complicated as it seems, and anyone can learn its origins and history. In addition to learning how better to understand (and enjoy!) classical music, The History of Classical Music for Beginners will help you learn of some of the more interesting and comical stories behind the music and composers"--P.[4] of cover
