Michael Pollan's book is a joy to listen to, and I was very sad when it ended. I'm off to find some more of his books to listen to- greatly recommended.
This story lives up to the hype. It's a great listen, very gripping. Highly recommended, download it & listen to it!
This is a good episode, covering Conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra Benjamin Zander and British actress Brenda Blethyn, on this edition of Fresh Air. Zander has been called "a Pied Piper" of classical music and "one of music's evangelists." His passionate performances have earned him quite a following. Through his teaching and his pre-concert discussions, he has tried to spread his love of classical music to a wider public.
This was a wonderful book to listen to- really brought the period alive. The narrator did an excellent job!
