The meaning of music

6 people found this helpful.
 on 18 October 2016
By Bridget Proust
This is a marvellous book, suitable both for the ignorant and the knowledgeable. The distinguished music critic Fiona Maddocks has chosen 100 classical pieces of music that she loves — familiar and unfamiliar — and written informative and illuminating accounts about the circumstances under which each work was composed. This little book will itself become a classic.

Illuminates, instructs and entertains.

This is a thoroughly charming and informative personal selection of classical music from nearly 1,000 years: beautifully presented, written and illustrated it is scholarship lightly worn by a national media critic who knows her onions. Perfect Christmas – or any other occasion – present, it does what every critic is famously encouraged to do: illuminate, instruct and entertain.

I received this book as a Christmas gift. The first thing you notice is how beautifully designed and bound it is. It’s quite a covetable “object” as well as being a good read, informative even for the seasoned music lover, and in parts inspiring in discovering new works.

great for music lovers.
