Description: Modeled on Aaron Copland's classic What to Listen for in Music, Rob Kapilow, star of NPR's Performance Today, has written an engaging book about listening to music for the 21st century -- for an entirely new breed of listeners, with completely different musical background, requiring completely different kinds of approaches, topics, and language. Kapilow helps readers become great listeners, based on his belief that the core of great listening has less to do with facts and far more to do with our ability to pay attention, listen closely, and notice. He shows how to listen to music from the inside out: from the composer's point of view, about all the things in a piece of music that composers want you to hear but that are so often missed. He gives readers a non-traditional listening toolbox filled with ideas and suggestions that will help enrich the reader's musical experiences. Each chapter explores a single often seemingly simple concept drawn from everyday experience designed to help readers think about and hear music differently. The book is organized like a piece of music, introducing topics as they arise in listening to a composition from beginning to end, so that the focus gradually widens as the book progresses: from idea, to phrase, to section, to movement.
