What is classical music?
Is it the music of Bach, Brahms and Beethoven?
Or is it the music of Pierre Boulez and John Cage?
The easy answer is: yes.
The real answer is that the term ‘classical music’ generally encompasses works
from the time of the ancient Greeks until today and,
just like with modern popular music, there are many different forms and
styles of this kind of music.
Come to Kent Memorial Library to explore many different types
of classical music in a series of programs, one piece at a time.
We’ll get a little background on the composer,
learn a little bit about the piece,
and listen to one or more versions of the same piece.
You can learn how to build a library on your iPod,
while learning how to tell a rondo from a fugue or
a sonata-allegro form from a scherzo.

Our first piece of music will be Bela Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra.
