"Music: An Appreciation", sixth edition, is an exciting new revision of the most widely used text for the non-majors' introduction to music or music appreciation courses. Instructors have made Kamien's "Music: An Appreciation" the leading book because of its thorough coverage (including world music), because of its well-chosen examples (based on adopters' input), because of its unsurpassed supplements package (including multi-media software) and because of its easy-to-follow listening outlines (keyed to the recording packages). Non-majors especially appreciate that Kamien provides them with a variety of ways to follow the listening outlines: written descriptions, musical notation, time counts and CD tracks. The sixth edition of this text offers 16 new listening outlines, reflecting current scholarship. The range of music discussed has been expanded. "Music: An Appreciation" includes broader coverage of music since 1950: music by women composers, baroque orchestra, the song cycle for voice and orchestra, jazz and American musical theatre. The Polygram CD and cassette packages have been thoroughly revised to include the latest and best recordings available. A creative and useful multi-media programme for Macintosh, "Maestro 2.0", lets students see as well as hear the listening outlines.
