Superb introduction for children and adults,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Story of Classical Music (Audio CD)
I bought this for my 12 year old son as a general background intro to classical music. He has enjoyed and I have too, I find it entertaining yet informative, with plenty of snippets of music to illustrate the points made. Aled Jones (who I am not a particular fan of) manages to narrate in a consistently pleasant and relaxed manner with none of the irritating mannerisms which often mar audio books. It has opened my eyes to composers I didn't know or thought were 'not for me' and I've gone on to explore more of their music. An absolute bargain.
