Publisher Description

INCLUDES AUDIO EXTRACTS!

Grandiose and glamorous, Baroque music stands alone, written to glorify the finest courts of Europe, in Italy, France, Germany, England, Austria and even far flung Spain. Its greatest composers, such as Vivaldi, Handel and Bach, head a fascinating cast of musical magicians, including Albinoni, Pachelbel and Scarlatti. Their lives are as intriguing as their music: we find virtuoso performers who earned their bread and butter in the cathedrals of Europe while keeping company with kings and queens, and setting opera houses ablaze across the continent with their fabulous new music. Discover Music of the Baroque Era is rich in musical detail of the time, set against some of the greatest events in history and illustrated by 2½ hours of masterpieces – both favourites and rarities – that give a true flavour of what there is to discover in the glorious Age of Baroque.

This e-book comes with 2½ hours of music from the Baroque era. Audio samples are contained in the text: just touch to play them while you read!
