Engaging, clear and informative, this is the story of western music - of its great composers and also of its performers and listeners, of changing ideas of what music is and what it is for. Paul Griffiths shows how music has evolved through the centuries, and suggests how its evolution has mirrored developments in the human notion of time, from the eternity of heaven to the computer's microsecond. The book provides an enticing introduction for students and beginners, using the minimum of technical terms, all straightforwardly defined in the glossary. Its perspective and its insights will also make it illuminating for teachers, musicians and music lovers. Suggestions for further reading and recommended recordings are given for each of the 24 short chapters.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Paul GriffithsPublisher: Cambridge University PressPublished: 01/01/2010ISBN: 9780521133661Pages: 348Weight: 1.05lbsSize: 8.40h x 5.40w x 0.90d
