Excellent course that is accessible and easy to understand. A wonderful combination of music history and listening.

It is a beautiful course for the fans of classical music and specially for the fans of Beethoven! Prof. Jonathan is really passionate about the music of Beethoven which is evident from his style of analyzing his sonatas. Although sometimes the course becomes too technical we enjoy it once we listen to the music and understand the nuances of the composition. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and will join next course too.

Mindblowing, exquisite explanations and a broad look on Beethoven's work. Simply magnificent.

One of the best courses I have taken online! Whether you are a musician or not, this course will improve your appreciation of classical music!
