Are there any fantastic lectures or videos about music history?

Recommended Posts

My husband loves the music courses from the Teaching Co. He has several on tape (obviously a few years old) as well as CD. As a classical music buff, he particularly enjoyed the one on listening to opera. I've listened to a few of the lectures with him, and I also found them to be interesting and enjoyable.

Teaching Company courses ever; even non-musicians love listening to Professor Greenberg.


The title is: "How to Listen to and Understand Great Music"


Here's the link:




It's a fascinating study in the history of music, and Professor Greenberg is one of the most engaging teachers I've ever heard.

"How to Listen to and Understand Great Music" is just as fun as it is informative. I wish all the TC professors were as entertaining. Don't be misled by the title; it is basically the history of Classical music so that you know how to identify what you are hearing, and what to listen for.
