Ratings and Reviews
Perfect for music students
This is exactly what I was looking for! Very well organized and descriptive account of western music history with detailed history of composers. As the mother of a young piano prodigy, this can help us learn about each composer as he advances in his study.
Disappointed cut/paste from Wikipedia
This simple app was a disappointment. It merely allows you to click on a composer's name to read the material posted for free on wikipedia. There are no graphics (other than a painting of the composer's face) or listing of what the composer wrote. There are no music samples. The text cut-and-pasted from wikipedia is merely dumped onto the screen and made slightly difficult to read due to the running together of paragraphs and lack of indentation. After reading through about a dozen entries, I deleted this app.
This is the most user friendly historical and educational app for the purpose of learning about the history of classical music I have ever used. I am a musician with over 30 years professional experience.
