Description : Every day, billions of people around the world listen to music of one kind or another, and millions listen to western classical music. Why do we do this? Because it’s funny? Because it excites or calms us? The attraction to music — especially classical music — has never been explained. The goal of this course is to do just that: to explain the mysteries and beauty of some great musical compositions, including the masterpieces of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, and Puccini.
Every day you listen to music. Why do we do it? Because it’s fun? Because it energizes or relaxes us? What is your culture? The pull of music – especially classical music — has never been explained. It makes it possible to play the music of the Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner, and Puccini.
It’s a bit different. The music is developed to the West. Ultimately, we reach the masters, commencing with Bach. What makes his music great? Why does it move us? What should we listen for? Where they did so. We have become more human (enriched by our personalities) and have a rollicking good time!
