The Classical Music Experience tells the stories of the world's most celebrated composers, ranging from Bach to Bernstein, including the works of Hayden, Beethoven, Rossini, Chopin, Brahms, Britten, Rachmaninoff and more. It weaves 500 years of history and music into a rich tapestry of sound and story unlike any other book of its kind.

You'll learn that:
--George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue was commissioned by a bandleader to prove that jazz could be socially acceptable if dressed in symphonic clothing.
--The rhythm of the opening four notes of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony spells out the letter "V" in Morse code and came to stand for "Victory" to the Allies during World War II.
--Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring inspired a riot in the concert hall at its premiere in Paris on May 29, 1913.
