The Vine: September 27, 2013
I am someone who never was really exposed to classical music, or any kind of musical theory, growing up.
Quite frankly if I go to an orchestral concert I usually fall asleep. However I would like to learn to appreciate it, as I think it would add a new dimension to my life. I am a very audio-oriented learner, so what I am looking for is a podcast or an audio book which incorporates actual music into the text, if that makes sense. It doesn't do me much good to hear that
"a sonata-allegro form is usually described as [insert verbal description]"
What I am looking for is something like
"a sonata-allegro form is [insert piece of music] which can be described thusly [insert verbal description]."
I hope that makes sense. I am willing to pay for something like that, and I also welcome any other suggestions about how I can learn to appreciate classical music.
