We will listen to the first and last compositions of a variety of composers from the last four hundred years, with one composer considered each week. Some composers appear to have found a characteristic style early on and retain this through their lives. Others took a long time to find their voice and it is hard to recognize their early work, heavily influenced by others as being by them. Some composers go through a variety of styles and it is interesting to explore this too. This course has now been given several times; the composers selected in 2022 will mainly not be those selected in earlier courses although we may revit a few who were particularly prolific in their early or later years.
