Editorial Reviews

Geoff Ridden’s smooth, fluid timbre has an appropriately musical quality as it effortlessly guides the listener on author Julian Johnson’s fascinating and illuminating journey through 1,000 years of Western classical music.

Johnson isn’t concerned with providing a droll, chronological history, but is instead preoccupied with, as he puts it, "what music has meant to people, why it mattered at the time, and why it still matters now" in this engrossing and enriching listen.

Publisher's Summary

What does classical music mean to the Western world? How has it transformed over the centuries? What relevance does it have today? Julian Johnson inspires readers to explore over 1,000 years of music and examines how music is related to some of the big ideas of Western experience, including spirituality, emotion, the weight of history, and self-identity.
