    The History of Opera By Richard Fawkes


    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 worth the [...]

    Works as an introduction to the subject There s a good point on listening, rather than reading, this kind of book because various snippets of key Operas are included during the book to help understand the different characteristics of each period or composer.

    The four discs cover nearly four centuries of opera, from Monteverdi to Stockhausen, with ample musical selections sprinkled in These musical interludes are quite short, of course, but quite adequate to their purpose Fawkes takes for granted a certain basic understanding of musical themes and movements, but even a musical novice will find much to enjoy here.

    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.
