I cannot recommend Robert Greenberg enough. If you have even the slightest interest in music - even if it's just a general sense of appreciation and not for the topic of his/said lecture series you're considering, you'll enjoy this scholar's personality, specialized perspectives, ability to tie his broader knowledge base to the topic, contemporary references both for us and for the subjects' time periods, energy, personal insight as an academic and a composer (overlap is significant within his course subjects with university and state posts full of political intrigue and power politics as well as an artist's perspective [as we know it or evidence suggests] paired with his own experiences and so forth) and his sheer enthusiasm for the topics he teaches. If you don't like this guy's courses ya' might be a stick in the mud (or seriously just NOT into the topics or history ... I suppose it can happen! Ha.). Check him out.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Some of this was over my non-musical head, but the delivery was very entertaining and I am inspired to learn more.
Have you listened to any of Professor Robert Greenberg’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Greenberg is very good.
Any additional comments?
This course would have been better with the written materials. However, I got by without them and for one credit, it's a heck of a deal.
