This is a series of recorded lectures and very similar to a course I took eons ago in "Listening to Music" at university. It features many of the same masterpieces, some different, and a couple new to me, at least. Lependorf sounds like a young and dorky professor, with plenty of enthusiasm, expertise, and a nice helping of humour. I listened through twice.
