The Great Courses – Music as a Mirror of History DVD series on Zoom shown at 9:30 AM on the following Tuesdays: Nov. 3, 10, 17, 24, Dec. 1, 8, 15, 22 and Jan. 5, 12, 19, 26.

“In the worlds of painting and literature, it’s easy to see where history and art intersect. In Picasso’s Guernica or Tolstoy’s War and Peace, it’s evident how works of art mirror and participate in the life of their times, sometimes even playing a role in historical events. But what about music? What is the intersection—if any—between the influential works of Western concert music and the historical times that surrounded them?

In Music as a Mirror of History, Great Courses favorite Professor Robert Greenberg of San Francisco Performances returns with a fascinating and provocative premise: Despite the abstractness and the universality of music and our habit of listening to it divorced from any historical context music is a “mirror” of the historical setting in which it was created…. Music lovers and history enthusiasts alike will be enthralled by this exploration of how momentous compositions have responded to—and inspired—pivotal events.”
