YEAR OF MUSIC: Classical inspiration for every day Year of Music is a carefully curated collection of classical music offering one piece to listen to every day of the year. In this follow-up to her much-loved Year of Wonder, award-winning violinist, journalist and broadcaster Clemency Burton-Hill seeks to represent the widest possible picture of what the genre known as 'classical music' can be. In this book, she dymystifies the music by humanising its creators. Of the composers included in her daily choices some are very famous indeed, but others have so far garnered only a niche audience. 'Classical composers can seem impossibly remote from the lives of regular humans in the 21st century. The term "classical" music, if it conjures any image at all, invariably calls to mind some sort of 18th-century European white male, perhaps in a powdered wig and velvet frock coat. We don't think of these humans as being just like us: relatable, fallible, flawed creatures who are all in their own ways figuring out how to be. We don't think of them as being women, people of colour, minorities. And yet in this book we find hundreds of inspiring humans of all stripes and backgrounds, creating music of dazzling diversity. I write of their stories, their lives and loves, their losses and triumphs, their sorrows and joys and as I did so that old cliché about music being the universal language was revealed for the profound truth it is. Truly all of human life is here.' Music is a universal, social object, made by humans for humans, passed between us as gifts across space and time. The pieces of music you will find in this book will see you through a whole year, offering a soundtrack to your everyday life as well as a reminder that in our ever more frenetic and fragmented lives, finding a space to sit and listen to a piece of music every day can be a singular gift to yourself.

Original obituaries of 101 of the world's greatest classical composers, including Bach, Beethoven, Handel, Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Elgar, Chopin and many others, published contemporaneously in music journals and newspapers across the world. This collection enlightens us as to how these geniuses were regarded at the time of their deaths - revealing how some of the composers we revere today were actually barely known when they passed away - and traces the way in which classical music developed across the centuries. They are the accounts of supremely talented men and women, whose names live on through works that continue to give pleasure to millions. Includes a foreword by Clemency Burton-Hill, the author of the best-selling Year of Wonder - Classical Music for every day and former Radio 3 presenter.

Ragle Gumm is an ordinary man leading an ordinary life, except that he makes his living by entering a newspaper contest every day - and winning, every day. But he gradually begins to suspect that his life - indeed his whole world - is an illusion, constructed around him for the express purpose of keeping him docile and happy. But if that is the case, what is his real world like, and what is he actually doing every day when he thinks he is guessing 'Where Will The Little Green Man Be Next?'

Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Sociology - Media, Art, Music, , language: English, abstract: Music, in all its multifarious styles and idioms, is everywhere, 24 hours a day. It never rests, and we can hear just about everything of significance ever composed, performed and improvised, at the touch of a button, on recordings and on the radio. If we live in or near a large town or city, we can attend a concert (or two) every day of our lives if we have the inclination. In this brief investigation into the effects of all this I will be concentrating on classical- or “serious” music, but the same points made here could be made of popular music, jazz and “world” music –they are all continuously available on the air, on disc, on line and in “live” performance. Thus, regarding classical music, we may perceive several differing, and sometimes opposed effects of its proliferation and availability. On the positive side, we are now in the situation where we can get to know very much more than our predecessors. Next to nothing is now out of our reach, whether it be some obscure Medieval motet, a 19th century piano piece by a forgotten minor composer, or the very latest work by a composer living and working in say, Lithuania or some equally remote region. All the great masterpieces of the past five or more centuries are regularly performed, or failing that, recorded, often numerous times. Works of lesser stature by minor composers continue to be rescued from oblivion and given their chance on disc and in the concert hall. In addition to this a steady stream of new music by composers from all six inhabited continents is performed and recorded.
