THE CONCERTO by Robert Greenberg, read by the author
Professor Greenberg lectures on the historical development of the concerto, which was born from opera in the seventeenth century and has been popular down to the present day. Rich with detail about both the works and their composers, and crackling with humor, wide-ranging cultural references, and infectious enthusiasm, these lectures are also liberally sprinkled with well-recorded musical examples.
