Classical Notes

Classical Notes (Hopkins Technology) is a dry exploration of a juicy subject ? there?s a lot of information here, but, inexplicably, not much music. An extensive section on composers and their work mostly limits itself to text; other parts of the program dabble in multimedia (Orchestras of the World has two long video clips, while Different Musical Forms has an hour-long audio lecture) but never really embrace it. The data is well-organized but presented in an flat way, much like a Windows help file. Minimal graphics and no background music keep things pretty dull. People with a background in classical music may find something to interest them in this mountain of facts, but new fans and the uninitiated will need to begin their education somewhere more lively.

– January 1997
