As a music educator, I thoroughly enjoyed this series. A non-music colleague told me about it, and I passed it on to another musician friend. All different kinds of people have found value in your work. Thank you!

Love it!
I absolutely love hearing about the history surrounding great composers and it’s greatest masterpieces! If you’re still taking requests on composers I’d love an episode about Leonard Bernstein. Thanks for your work guys!

Decompose by Jade Simmons
Decompose is a masterpiece of its own. It should be a knowledge network production. Would love to hear about Haydn, Grieg and Elgar.

Everybody knows the Beethoven story: He’s a brilliant composer who faced hearing loss; a genius who couldn’t listen to his own masterpieces. But there’s a different way to consider the story we think we know.
