1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Do you know a capella from zarzuela, or your major from your minor? Can you distinguish between a serenade and a symphony? If you have only one minute, there is time - using Know It All: Classical Music - to understand the creative journey taken by classical music from the Middle Ages to the modern era. Our early ancestors understood pitch and rhythm and the basic tools that have been worked and ordered by composers and performers over the past 400 years into an extraordinary body of music written for soloists, chamber musicians, and entire orchestras. Today, everyone has access to a prodigy of classical music, which - far from being traditional or elitist - is alive and magical. From plainsong to program music, appreciate the magnitude and majesty, the passion and the pathos of sounds that have the power to stir our emotions to great joy, or infinite sadness. Here's music to your ears."--provided by Amazon.com
