How to Listen to and Understand Great Music

by Robert Greenberg

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
36 Hrs.


After taking this course, you will hear and understand an entire language of unmatched beauty, genius, and power. Professor Greenberg provides you with an outstanding grasp of musical forms—the "grammatical" elements that make you fluent in the "language" of music.

And he teaches about the powerful influence of social context on musical creation. James Collins explains in Inc. magazine, "The Greenberg series combines a history of western civilization with a history of great music from ancient Greece to the 20th century. Greenberg’s 48 lectures come alive with passion and knowledge. The course illustrates the interplay between societal change and innovation."

Professor Greenberg takes you inside magnificent compositions by Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Verdi, Wagner, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky—and more.
