History of Classical Music. Your Rating. Overview . Слушайте Fawkes, R. An enjoyable course in the history of music classical narrated by Rober Powell no less - hmm remembered him as one of the stupid detectives with Jasper Carrot in the sketch The Detectives. His voice on these CDs is excellent though. You get 4 CDs for your money and it compliments the other series BBC Radio 4's The Making of Music. The excerpts of music chosen to illustrate the text complement it effectively. I wasn't bored, I didn't fall asleep while listening. It is a nicely recorded albums and I don't think you will be disappointed. Written by Richard Fawkes. Narrated by Robert Powell. From Gregorian Chant to Henryk Gorecki, the first living classical composer to get into the pop album charts, here is the fascinating story of over a thousand years of Western classical music and the composers who have sought to express in music the deepest of human feelings and emotions. Polyphony, sonata form, serial music many musical expressions are also explained with the text illustrated by performances from some of the most highly praised recordings of recent years. From Gregorian chant to Stravinsky and Gorecki, 150 musical excerpts illustrate the narrative. Richard Fawkes. Rating details. Music of the western classical tradition spanning some 14 centuries - from the emergence of Gregorian chant to the sounds of the present day - is illustrated by 150 musical examples. Get A Copy. Online Stores . Audio CD. Release group information. Artist: Richard Fawkes read by Robert Powell. Type: Album Audiobook. by Richard Fawkes Author, Robert Powell Reader. Having been a fan of classical-style music for over fifty years, and read many books on the subject including biographies, I must say that I found 'The History of Classical Music' a first-class production. For the amateur student or enthusiastic beginner, it is perfectly paced and well pitched for them. The libretto is entertaining and not at all heavy. The story line, which moves along briskly, does not get bogged down in superfluous deep scholastic detail and thus maintains the interest and attention of the listener.

Fawkes was educated at the Royal Masonic School, Bushey, then spent eighteen months as an instructor at the Outward Bound School in Kenya with Voluntary Service Overseas. A graduate of the University of Wales Lampeter BA English Honours, he joined the BBC as a general trainee in 1967. The History of Classical Music
