couldn't put this book down. Had me from the get go. Such insight and honesty about his life. Became and even bigger fan after listening to this book.
just like I think about Rob Lowe this was a fun easy listen. Not too deep, but not all fluff it really made me much more interested in him than I was when I started. Made me a fan.
I'm very pleased with how they have formatted these lectures. Each 45 minute lecture discusses the composer's life and current circumstances while they had composed the piece, as well as the current music environment that influenced it.
Then the featured piece of that lectures plays through in snippets with pauses to discuss what is being heard and highlights the structural form of each work. It's a great way to break down and highlight each piece especially if you have access to listen to it in its entirety later on.
