What Makes It Great?®

What makes great music great? Through his concert presentations, commentaries on NPR’s “Performance Today” and CD series, Rob Kapilow takes listeners inside the music: he unravels, slows down, and recomposes key passages to hear why a piece is so extraordinary. Theatermania.com calls Rob Kapilow’s engaging commentaries “a knockout combination of entertainment and education.” Great music rewards great listeners, and Rob Kapilow’s What Makes It Great?® is about great listening.

“Not since the late Leonard Bernstein has classical music had a combination salesman-teacher as irresistible as Kapilow. ... He’s as lively as a top-flight sports announcer and as entertaining as a stand-up comedian. But he’s also got substance in spades.”
    — Kansas City Star
