I love how The CoffeeHouse talks about popular composers' less known works! As someone who loves discovering new music, this is a great guide for my listening. It's also fun that groups of episodes relate to eachother- it really puts the history in a global context.
Entertaining and informative
Interesting explanations of music, composers and the life and times of musicians. Pitched mostly for non-musicians, but occasionally gets technical. The presenters sometimes have some very unconventional pronunciations of composers, places, and terms, which is surprising because they seem very well-informed.
