History of the World According to the Great Composers Part II. What is it that motivates composers to write great music? Over the years, some of the most inspirational music has been writing about events of history. This course is organized as a world history course, starting in ancient times, and continuing to the present. Whenever we encounter an event of history about which a composer has written music, we play samples of the music. For example, in previous offerings of the Part I series for Biblical times we studied Rossini (Moses), Saint-Saens (Samson) and Bach (the Passion masses).
