This was my first Great Courses book. What a treat to learn so many things that I had no real Idea about. I have bought several courses since then and find that if I speed up the voice to 2 times the normal speed I can digest all kinds of information rather quickly. If I had payed more attention in school, this info would not be so new to me. The narrator was very interesting to listen to and gave a perspective of the common man that I found very enjoyable.
Dr Greenberg as usual is very informative and interesting. I evan think his jokes are funny.
I have listened to almost all of his composers series. Dig in deep and learn about these great men.
All of Dr. Greenberg's lectures will enthrall you so buy this and all his lectures on the great composers they are cheap and short.
Robert Greenberg is fabulous as an instructor. His insights instruct and enlighten with humor and grace. I have listened to all of his great composer series.
How to listen to great opera is also very intertaining.
His enthusiasm for the subject and his encouragement that we expose ourselves to music.
Listen to all his lectures you will be enlightened and have wonderful journey into the lives of these great composers.
I loved the torture chamber and the mechanical trap doors and hidden passages inf this book. This book reminded me of a Sherlock Holmes story.
The Persian and Raul, because of there quest to find Christine and the many obstetrical s they had to figure out how to get past
this is the fist book. He did a great job
I loved the ending. I will listen to a book in bed with ear buds, not to bother my wife. Usually I start to fall asleep after 10 minutes and will start over in the morning.The last hour and a half of this book was very exciting, I listened till the end at 1:00 pm in the morning.
Read this book it is different then the musical or movie worth the time.
I bought this because of a recommendation in our local news paper. I wanted to read the book before I saw the movie, then I found out there was a stage play in London. The story had just enough chills but did not keep me up at night. give this one a try and let your imagine run wild.
Dr. Greenberg does it again. I have finished all of his great masters and have enjoyed every one of them. You will find this lecture fascinating especially how Russian politics affected how he was able to write music and what he was able to compose. I found this music and lecture fascinating.
Another book that was published recently on this subject is Leningrad: Siege and Symphony: The Story of the Great City Terrorized by Stalin, Starved by Hitler, Immortalized by Shostakovich
How did I miss this in my 55 years of life? This is the novel that started all novels, I found it very entertaining and amusing. I know it is long but it will pay off with many enjoyable hours of listening pleasure.
Listen to a classic and find out for yourself why this book is so important.
I found this course fascinating and very insightful, I learned things i did not no to ask about. I came to an understanding of the importance of the civil war to our history as a nation.
don't miss this course you will not be disapointed.
It was very informative to learn about Mark Twain. I have started to listen to Innocents Abroad. Great refresher and I learned many things that were new to me. Look forward to many more great courses lectures.
I enjoyed this set of lectures very much, and would recommend them to any one cisiting with a doctor.
I have visited with many doctors in the last five years. This was very interesting and informative and I believe will help me ask the proper questions at my next visit.
There is an old blues song about who will sing the blues when all the old masters are gone.
Buddy Guy sings this song, I wonder if we are not in the same boat.
Very good discussion about what cane happen when we start to adjust the population and what is not bought because there is no need for those kinds of products.
I enjoyed the subject, having worked with youth all my life and seeing a shift in the number of youth that are living my area. evan when young families move in to my neighborhood.
Food for thought.
