In clear and entertaining prose, Plotkin explores a thousand years of music, introduces listeners to more than one hundred great works, and profiles in depth many significant composers, including Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Berlioz, Tchaikovsky, Dvoøák, and Mahler. He describes all the musical instruments in the orchestra, defines major musical terms, and makes music theory comprehensible for the uninitiated. There are also conversations with important musicians who offer fascinating insights about their art.

Plotkin is easy to understand and often inspiring...leading one to become familiar with new pieces. It would have been a good idea, though, if he had waited until his cold was over and his nose was not so stuffed up to record this CD. He has a pronounced nasal quality to his voice.These things matter. A problem with the narration becomes a real barrier to enjoyment after a while, no matter how good the text.
