Just been catching up with episodes 1-4 on iplayer. I think it's brilliant! Looking forward to tonight's episode on Stravinsky, Schoenberg et al.

In reply to bpmclimb: Not just you; it's great. The Sound And The Fury is equally brilliant.

Not just you, the wife and I love it as well. All the more so as there's quite a lot we disagree with, so we get very good value out of it - one hour's programme, 2 hours discussing afterwards. He didn't seem to like Mozart and Haydn very much, and I found his views on Wagner somewhat weird, being mostly based on a misunderstanding of one opera (Parsifal) while ignoring all the others. But as I say, the rather provocative approach is part of the fun, and I thought the episode on the Baroque was just brilliant.

Has it got Psychedelica, Punk, New Wave and Funk in it?

Think this is a repeat of a series from a while ago so yes, definitely has funk in the last one.

In reply to bpmclimb: I watched the first episode ,ast night on iplayer and I thought it was brilliant. Early music is one of my favourite genres of classical music and this programme is one of the best I have seen on the subject.

You'll get a brief mention of one of those if you're lucky. We're talking the whole history of music here. Getting all three would be like a history of all life on earth in which you got ten minutes on sub-species of gerbil.

I don't think this series is a repeat. You are probably referring to his excellent series "How music works" (2006).
But he is keen to embrace modern music styles as part of the mainstream so I would guess they will be included in the current series.
