A little confession…
I am a guy just like the next one. Which means, no matter ten years of studying the arts, I still have next to no clue about classical music. – And I bet one dead albatross most others don’t as well. I am not talking about recognizing Bach when it is played on the radio, I am talking about having a real understanding what this music is about.
And thankfully, the good people at Yale University have put a series of lectures online that can help one to do just that.
So, without further ado, enjoy! I am listening to the whole course also.
