Notes & Reviews:
"In this series I'm going to look at five of the great breakthroughs that European music has experienced in its extraordinary history; five momentous discoveries. I also want to show what they mean to us today, at a time when so-called classical music is being absorbed into a much bigger mainstream and when its 1,000-year reign seems to be coming to a close." -Howard Goodall. With intriguing anecdotes and witty humour, composer Howard Goodall presents five innovations in European musical history, which have overwhelmingly changed its course.
With intriguing anecdotes and witty humour, composer Howard Goodall presents five innovations in European musical history, which have overwhelmingly changed its course: NOTATION: the journey from plain chant in medieval times to symphonic works and improvisation, EQUAL TEMPERAMENT (a universal tuning, scale and key system): from the discoveries of Pythagoras to JS Bach, OPERA: where music interfaces with real life with love, death and politics, THE PIANO: this versatile instrument is unique to European culture, RECORDED SOUND: from Caruso to world music and sampling.
