    Story
    What made the experience of listening to How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition the most enjoyable?

    Greenberg is passionate, lively, funny, and always crystal-clear.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition?

    I thought a lot of early music, including plain chant and the madrigal, were not for me. Boy was I wrong!


    Have you listened to any of Professor Robert Greenberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Almost every time he plays an excerpt that he's been describing, I'm moved.


    Any additional comments?

    I fell in love with great music rather late in the game, at age 22, without any knowledge. I've always steered clear of explanation and analysis, fearing that intellectualizing music would throw a wet blanket over my enjoyment. I was wrong. These lectures have increased my enjoyment enormously.
