After listening to A Natural History of Dragons on Audible, I decided to try The Life and Works of Chopin. Audible lends itself very well to books on music history, because they include sample recordings of a composer's music. For example, after the narrator discusses a particular piece of music and its importance to Chopin's life, they play a recording. It makes for a very pleasant and natural format to learn about music history.
I chose an audio book on Chopin because as a violinist, I wasn't as familiar with him or his works (he wrote primarily for piano). Listening to the audiobook, I found Chopin's passion for the piano and his revolutionary approach to it fascinating. While pianists might especially enjoy this audio book, I'd recommend it to any musician or music lover. Jeremy Siepmann, the writer and narrator, goes into loving detail about Chopin's music, from his earliest gems to his great masterworks. He manages to fit Chopin's compositions into his biography in a natural way, without drawing too many false parallels between his life and his work.
