The History of Classical Music 4 Audio Cassette Set by Richard Fawkes

The History of Classical Music is an affordable and accessible resource for the Listening and Appraising sections of the national curriculum. Robert Powell narrates a fascinating story of over a thousand years of Western classical music from Gregorian chant to Henryk Gorecki (the first living classical composer to get into the pop album charts). Many musical expressions and musical forms are explained and illustrated by performances from some of the most highly praised recordings of recent years (all but a few taken from the Naxos and Marco Polo catalogues).
