    A mile wide and an inch thick, as someone once described my college education It does cover just about every major and not so major composer of opera, from Peri to Philip Glass, though most get exceedingly short shrift It ends with some notes on production and a few hoary anecdotes that would probably induce eye rolling if repeated in certain company Unfortunately, it does not include The Rabbit of Seville or What s Opera, Doc but the recording excerpts from other notable works make it ...

    I don t know nothing about opera and this book is perfect for people like me Brief introduction from beginning to today, short audio passages from operas and presentation of some the best known composers Short, informative and interesting.

    Enthusiastic, occasionally humorous, and enticing This audiobook made me want to listen to opera, and left me with the feeling that I know something about opera and its history Although five hours the duration of this History seem long, in fact there s so much ground to cover that most of the time I felt like I was rushing through a period or composer A few technical terms escaped me, so it might help if you already know something about opera, but in general it s quite accessible.Minor criticisms A few too many of the audio samples are overtures, which I find strange because there s no singing in them Coverage of English opera, though brief, feels a little forced, almost as if the author felt he had to include England I wish the transc...

    Good overview of opera Unlike some textbooks, which shall remain nameless, Fawkes actually has interesting stories and talks about the significant accomplishments of minor composers, not just the big fancy composers.

  8. says:

  9. says:

    A good introduction to opera with some good anecdotes I enjoyed how they had excerpts to explain what they were talking about Made me anxious to keep learning about opera

    This was enjoyable than I thought it would be.All of the musical interludes were enlightening.And hearing a Castrato sing was kinda creepy.
