Howard Goodall's Big Bangs: Turning Points in Music History Video (5-part series - DVD)
The Big Bang isn't just about the creation of the galaxy anymore. In this universally appealing five-part series, pianist and composer Howard Goodall is a musical Neil Degrasse Tyson, walking music novices and aficionados alike through the history of Western music. Beginning at the innovation of the thin red line a century ago to changes in classical styles, contemporary concepts, and modern electronic sounds that are with us on every step of our daily journey, Turning Points in Music History gives the viewer a chance to absorb musical concepts in new ways. Without the changes that have taken place over the past 1000 years, we would not know music as we do today.
