It’s still a great find for someone who wants to expand their knowledge

A solid book, but it assumes the reader has already done a bit of homework or has had formal training (in music history, or as musician). It’s still a great find for someone who wants to expand their knowledge. The information is well-organized, even if the writing can be a little whimsical at times.

The Renaissance ROCKS!

Ordered this book from a used book seller through Amazon with no problems or complaints. The book arrived in a timely manner and was exactly as the seller listed it as “used-in good condition”.

Funny and Informative

Really funny tongue-in-check book about the many actors and aspects of classical music. Lots of information on what classical music is and its history. I laughed all the way through it!

A great CD from a Great Artist… He teaches at the CSUS Jazz Camp with the Widner Band and is as good a teacher as he is an artist … Would highly recommend this CD …..

For its goal, easily a 5!

I was unfamiliar with Barber’s works and from the title expected the book to accompany my Mus 312 class on Baroque Music History and focus completely on that. (whoops) The book’s real goal is a comical approach to music history in its entirety. None the less, I still read the book and enjoyed it immensely. I wish I would have had this (and now Barber’s other books which I also highly recommend) for my Mus 100 class (Introduction to Music Masterpieces). Barber’s books take the information a textbook offer in an easygoing and funny way. Had my professor assigned all of Barber’s Music History books together instead of a normal textbook for an Introduction to Music History, I would have left with the same knowledge a textbook offers but having enjoyed many more laughs along the way. Informative yet funny, how can you lose with that?

a very good sequel indeed

David Barber wrote Bach beethoven and the Boys some years ago. Since then he has added When the Fat Lady sings and even more recently If it Ain’t BAroque.
