Why Bach?: An Audio-Visual Appreciation

Bach, Beethoven, Bartok: An  Audio-Visual Essay

"Brown puts into words and crystal-clear theory all sorts of things I'd previously felt only as intuitions... His essay has been a gift in opening my understanding." - Alain de Botton, best-selling author of How Proust Can Change Your Life, The Architecture of Happiness, and other books

"Why Bach? offers a marvelous new way for lay people like me to read about music... I couldn't tear myself away from it... The self-playing scores and clever annotations let me see and hear what the text drew my attention to." - Helen Vendler, Professor of English, Harvard University, MacArthur Award winner
