This is a listen for music lovers, but perhaps not in the way you'd expect. Music clips are not found in this audiobook. Instead, music historian Harvey Sachs offers some fascinating context on 10 works that he considers to be masterpieces. Fans of great classical music will find Sachs's audiobook a delight, particularly as narrated by Paul Bellantoni. Sachs's research on the composers he highlights produces more than a few "ah-ha" moments. The ease with which Bellantoni moves from the discussions of the composers to the musical terms found throughout the audiobook makes this an engaging listen. While music, like all art, is subjective, this audiobook is certain to have listeners seeking out these masterpieces for a first or repeat listen.
