"Her enthusiasm leaps off the page." BOOKS OF THE YEAR, Mail on Sunday

Have you ever heard a piece of music so beautiful it stops you in your tracks? Or wanted to discover more about classical music but had no idea where to begin?

Classical music has a reputation for being difficult to understand and inaccessible to those who aren't already 'in the know'. Writer, broadcaster and musician Clemency Burton-Hill believes everyone should feel welcome at the classical party. Now her deep love for the art form and desire to share its diverse wonders has inspired her to curate this unique and eclectic treasury.

Year of Wonder presents 366 works from the medieval era to the present. Like a regular dose of meditation or mindfulness, a daily encounter with such music might just nourish and enrich your life in unexpected ways - whoever you are, wherever you're from.

Descriere

Classical music for everyone - an inspirational piece of music for every day of the year, celebrating composers from the medieval era to the present day, written by award-winning violinist and BBC Radio 3 presenter Clemency Burton-Hill.

Have you ever heard a piece of music so beautiful it stops you in your tracks? Or wanted to discover more about classical music but had no idea where to begin?

YEAR OF WONDER is a unique celebration of classical music by an author who wants to share its diverse wonders with others and to encourage a love for this genre in all readers, whether complete novices or lifetime enthusiasts.

Clemency chooses one piece of music for each day of the year, with a short explanation about the composer to put it into context, and brings the music alive in a modern and playful way, while also extolling the positive mindfulness element of giving yourself some time every day to listen to something uplifting or beautiful. Thoughtfully curated and expertly researched, this is a book of classical music to keep you company: whoever you are, wherever you're from.

'The only requirements for enjoying classical music are open ears and an open mind.'
