Discover Classical Music
- Sabine Leitner
This short course is aimed at people who would like to expand their understanding and appreciation of classical music and discover more of the beauty that has enchanted generations of listeners. We will listen to selected pieces (on CD) and each evening will be dedicated to a particular epoch, starting with Baroque, followed by Classical and finally Romantic music. The evenings will also give an overview of the historical times and the ideas that inspired each of these movements, as well as some information on the composers. By the end of this short course, you will hopefully feel that you have gained in general knowledge and developed your inner senses to connect with music in a deeper way.The presenter, Sabine Leitner, studied music at the universities of Graz and Vienna and ran her own music school in Vienna for several years. She has lived in London since 1996, where she is Chair of the New Acropolis School of Philosophy, and Director of the International Tristan Institute for Music and Art Education.
