Have you ever thought about the creative process that boiled inside geniuses like Mozart, Beethoven, Dvorák, Strauss, Brahms, Mendelssohn, or Liszt-or any composer, for that matter?What goes through a composer's mind when a musical composition is being set to paper? Are those magical weeks or months spent in an agonizing creative blur of ideas first tried and then discarded, or it a matter of pure inspiration?
Down the rabbit hole with Dr. G!

Mr. Greenberg does much better than this
This is the 4th Mr. Greenbergh's book I got from the Great Courses and the 1st one I dislike. The performance is not that good and the time spent on information he repeats on other books make this one unworthy for me.
By the way... I truly recommend "How to listen to and Understand Great Music" as well as "The Concerto" and "The 30 greatest Orchestral Works".
