Customer Reviews

excellent podcast

As a music student in college and a young composer, I find this podcast to be very informative. If you enjoy this podcast, you should check out Naxos' Classical Music Spotlight Podcast as it goes more in depth (average length of 20 minutes).

At last, from my email to my iPod

I have enjoyed this as an email for a long time. It's good to see it as a podcast. As always, I wish the music portion would be longer.

Nice podcast

This is a wonderful snippit. I always enjoy it. I also wish the music portion was longer. Maybe it's just long (short?) enough for many people. I have followed through on many of the works mentioned.
