  • The Story of Classical Music

    Story
    (28)

    The lives and music of the great composers of classical music unfold in this entertaining account, introduced by the conductor and musical personality Marin Alsop. In 1200 years, classical music grew from the chanting of medieval monks through the symphonies of Beethoven and the grand operas of Wagner to the huge orchestral sound-world of the 21st century, with its electronics and its film music.

    Boulderite says: "Interesting, informative, easy"
    "A great listen"
    Overall

    A delight to listen to and lightly informative. Highly recommended.

    Story

    Mark Darrow grew up in a small Ohio town with no real advantages beyond his intelligence and athletic ability. But thanks to the intervention of Lionel Farr - a professor at Caldwell, the local college - Darrow became an excellent student and, later, a superb trial lawyer. Now Farr asks his still-youthful protégé for a life-altering favor. An embezzlement scandal has threatened Caldwell's very existence - would Darrow consider becoming its new president?

    "The Spire reaches no heights"
    Overall

    Dreadfully boring. Juvenile dialog, nothing happens. Don't bother.

    Story

    At an annual party to celebrate the success of the racing season, everything seemed to be running well to form, including the need for more champagne. Then a runaway horsebox ploughed into the marquee. A witness to the terrible death and destruction, wine merchant Tony Beach knows it is just one of those tragic accidents. But when his expert advice is called into play over sub-standard alcohol in a local night club, connections start to click, and another person dies, horribly.

    Nina says: "Another winner for this ex-jockey"
    "Great story, well read."
    Overall

    Dick Francis is consistently excellent and this story maintains the standard. A macabre touch in the mode of murder, but Francis' usual perceptive insights into human nature. Top class.
