Mozart—His Life and Music, Robert Greenberg

(6h10)

This is a series of 8 45-minute lectures, which interweaves a biography of Mozart with clips of his music.

After listening to the first 2 hours, I had my review all prepared: The idea is mixing music with biography is great, and Prof Greenberg is a compelling presenter — but the overall experience is held back by the recordings of music not being that great, and sounding slightly off. Sadly for me this review backfired when I realised that my policy of listening to audiobooks on 3x speed may have affected this audiobook in ways that it didn’t affect others. Sure enough, once I hit 1x speed, the music was perfectly well recorded, and a fair bit more enjoyable.

Some may view this as symbolic of a broader trend of me doing certain things wrong in life.
