Classical Music ultimate reference guide

Do you know someone who loves NPR? Or who cannot live without listening to orchestral maneuvers of a wonderful symphony? The NPR Listener's Encyclopedia of Classical Music is a complete education in classical music, written with great verve and cunning wit. As "authority" as one might think one is, all music lovers can pick up this one-volume compendium and become a more knowledgeable, discerning listener.

Take, for example: 

  • The sonata form revealed, and why it's been deeply satisfying for three centuries.
  • What to listen for in Brahms, a self-described Classicist who was one of music's great innovators.
  • Pizzicato, fioritura, parlando, glissando.
  • The transformative power of Toscanini–who earned more conducting the New York Philharmonic than his contemporary Babe Ruth made with the Yankees.
  • And throughout, more than 2,000 recommended recordings.

The NPR Listener's Encyclopedia of Classical Music makes a terrific gift, too! Buy one for yourself and one for someone you know will appreciate!
