Join conductor and host Joshua Weilerstein as he takes you through each era of classical music(Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary). We're going to cover approximately 1170 years of music in 60 minutes, from Kassiani and Hildegard, to Bach and Beethoven, to Brahms and Tchaikovsky, to Stravinsky and the music of today. This podcast is designed primarily for beginners, but I certainly learned something researching it, so it's good for aficionados as well! This episode includes bonus content - suggestions for a first piece to listen to for each composer mentioned!
