Copland really knows his stuff and has some great insights into things. Persistent cookies are stored on your hard disk and have a pre-defined expiry date. Even without this, however, I have learned a great deal from this book. Each chapter is followed with a list of suggested pieces of music to listen to.

Like some other reviewers, I wish very much that some kind person would put out a CD or set up a website with the specific passages Copland cites, as well as his broader listening list. He also does an admirable job of attempting to put in words some of the more mysterious elements of music. This is not a book that will provide the reader with all that is needed to completely own this art form.

He does not lose a layman in technical jargon, music esscuchar, or advanced music theory. He also includes brief sections of the musical notes for those who have the ability to read music. This book will make a music lover out of you, or will give you a far greater appreciation for what they are hearing. I really did not know Copland was so articulate and good at writing.

I’m a regular concert goer, with some background coopland music, but nothing really in classical. I HIGHLY recommend you listen to the works he mentions while reading the book, it gives you a much much clearer understanding of what he is trying to explain For that I am grateful. His musical works ranged from ballet and orchestral music to choral music and movie scores.

It’s a quick read that nevertheless covers a great deal of material.

I do not appreciate the writing style and Copland comes off as being a bit arrogant and high-brow in his writing, This book is probably great for musicians, but non-musicians should be careful picking this up.


He describes the sensuous plane as listening to music simply for the pleasure of the music itself. Are you hearing everything that is going on? I think the subject really does need a format like Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts where you hear a sample of the items they are discussing.
