Anne Midgette, chief classical music critic at the Washington Post, recently wrote an article that caught our attention called, “A beginner’s guide to enjoying classical music. No snobs allowed.” We figured that she must have been listening to Classical Classroom, so we invited her on to chat. In this episode, Midgette discusses the pointers in her article (gems such as, “Classical music can do things no other music can”), talks about her own circuitous path to classical music critic stardom, and recommends some pieces of music to get you on your way to learning to love classical music more.
