The Classic FM Friendly Guide to Music (including CD)

The Classic FM Friendly Guide to Music (including CD)

by Darren Henley (Author)


This book accompanies the Classic FM radio series presented by Tony Robinson in 2006/7 and is a partner volume to the Friendly Guide composers' books (Classic FM Friendly Guides to Mozart, Beethoven and Elgar). The Friendly Guide to Music fills a gap in the market - an accessible guide to, and history of, the classical music that is played on the station. The accompanying CD contains illustrations of the music, with reference to the Classic FM 'Hall of Fame' (a yearly survey of the nation's classical music favourites).
