Book Club

“The Big Listen”

Whether you’re a newcomer to classical music or an aficionado, Year of Wonder will inspire, nourish, and enrich your life in unexpected ways. Get yourself a copy of Year of Wonder by Clemency Burton-Hill. It introduces you to one piece of music each day of the year, artfully selected from across genres, time periods, and composers. Thoughtfully curated and masterfully researched, Year of Wonder is a book of classical music for everyone.
