The courses listed and described in this section cover two aspects of the history and appreciation of music:
A. detailed 4- or 5-lecture courses about a selection of the most significant and popular composers, and
B. several general subjects such as an introduction to opera, familiarising audiences with key aspects of the famous composers’ individual styles, and a history of music and art combined – a synthesis of the arts.
The courses are richly illustrated with musical examples, and some also include slide presentations.
We invite you to peruse Elizabeth Handley’s fascinating and deeply researched material.
