The Development of Western Music: A History

Portada
McGraw Hill, 1998 - 734 páginas
Stolba offers a chronological presentation of the sweep of Western music and its composers, beginning with the music of antiquity and proceeding to the 20th Century. Since any discussion of the evolution of music is not complete without also discussing events that influenced that evolution, this comprehensive text integrates information about historical periods, cultures, and artistic movements. Fine art reproductions, detailed maps and chronologies, newly designed in this edition, also help students place the musical discussions in their cultural, geographical, and historical contexts. Along with its newly recorded CD sets and accompanying 2-volume anthology, The Development of Western Music offers a coordinated presentation of the diverse range of Western music and its composers.
