Great Courses DVD lecture series continues with Professor Robert Greenberg of San Francisco Performances who presents a fascinating and provocative premise: Despite the abstractness and the universality of music—and our habit of listening to it divorced from any historical context—music is a “mirror” of the historical setting in which it was created. Music lovers and history enthusiasts alike will be enthralled by this exploration of how momentous compositions have responded to—and inspired—pivotal events. This is a 45 minute-long lecture for 24 weeks on DVDs. Please note: lectures are stand alone; come to 1, some or all! No class on Nov 10 and 24.
