In-depth intro

I have been into classical music for decades, composers from the baroque to mid-twentieth century, so I am not looking for “introductions to classical music”. I started listening to this podcast series by coincidence, and I must say it was quite interesting and very informative. There is so much more to say, so many more composers and pieces of music to introduce a novel listener to. But this series does a pretty good job, worth your time if you have heard some classical music and are curious to learn more.
