    Default Hello! Tips on program notes and analysis

    Hi all,

    My name is Dean, I've been listening to Classical for over a decade but have only recently started began to try to comprehend the forms and structures involved. I've been printing out analysis and program notes for the (mostly) symphonies I've been listening to, using Wikipedia and anything else I can find, but I was wondering if there is a resource I'm unaware of that would make my life easier? Maybe there's a previous thread that highlights them?

    Cheers, Dean.

    I have found Michael Steinberg's book "The Symphony: A Listener's Guide" a great reference. It is basically a collection of extensive program note-style essays on the core repertoire. I was able to get a used copy for only a few dollars on Amazon.

    Thank you so much. It seems expensive at the moment, but I'll keep an eye on it in case it goes down.
