    Story
    What did you love best about The 30 Greatest Orchestral Works?

    Greenberg is a great teacher. I loved the combination of biography, history and music analysis. I have enjoyed classical music for many years without knowing much about it. I found this course very interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The music in relation to the composer's life and personality, and historic context.


    What does Professor Robert Greenberg bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His enthusiasm and knowledge come through his voice, very engaging.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No! I savored it while cooking every evening for a few weeks.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to listening to more of Greenberg and other Great Courses.
