Try Whistling This by Andrew Ford

US$ 16.99 List price: $ 23.60 You save: 28% ($ 6.61)

Perceptive and entertaining, Try Whistling This is a pleasurable journey through music, ideas and history.

Andrew Ford traces the concept of dirty dancing back to the sixteenth century, marvels at the weirdeness of Percy Grainger and considers the decision of Wilhelm Furtwängler to keep conducting under the Nazis. He explores the intersection of words and music, the bugbear of Australian musical identity, and the fundamental importance, in music and in life, of listening.

There are essays based on Ford's acclaimed radio series Music and Fashion, as well as illuminating examinations of music-makers from Mozart to Messiaen, Elgar to Brett Dean, Cole Porter to Bob Dylan

In Try Whistling This, a brilliant communicator offers a fresh take on music and changing times.
