A few of his songs are broadcast on radio tonight: I've never heard any of the music of this key figure in music history. Any thoughts?

I believe that he invented the opera, and ushered in the start of the Baroque era ........

You mean, rather like Beethoven ushered in the start of the Romantic era?

Well, you start with Post #1 ........ and, roughly around Post #2, upon realizing that this thread bites (it's whacked), you vacate the thread .........

(there will be no fee for this guidance)

Sometimes I start from the bottom of the page, hoping I can understand what's going on without having to read EVERYTHING (didn't even TRY with 71 pages of Elgar).
