In this unique celebration of classical music, one inspirational piece is showcased for each day of the year. Classical music has a reputation for being stuffy, boring, and largely inaccessible, but Burton-Hill introduces readers to pieces that are artfully selected from across genres, time periods, and composers. Her short introductions contextualize each piece, and makes the music come alive in modern and playful ways. And in some cases the pieces are tied in to a particular date (the composer's birth or death; the anniversary of the piece's premiere; a seasonal theme).

A wonderful, accessible guide to a year's worth of classical music - I'm working my way through this one throughout the year. (Also wonderful: some fantastic soul made a comprehensive Spotify playlist of all the songs!)
