9780131838604: A Brief History of Music in Western Culture

Suitable for all courses in music history.

 

This brief and accessible text provides undergraduates with a conceptual framework for understanding stylistic and social developments in the history of music from classical antiquity to the present. This text allows the student to grasp the richness and importance of musical history in two important ways. It combines narrative with primary sources in a lively and engaging manner and it traces key concepts of musical style and the uses of music across time.

From the Back Cover:

Structured for a one- or two- semester course in music history, this text is a condensed version of Mark Evan Bonds' A History of Music in Western Culture.

A Brief History of Music in Western Culture:

  • Focuses squarely on the music, tying names, dates and concepts to the study of a carefully selected repertory of works.
  • Tells the story of Western music in a clear and compelling narrative to help students gain a broad understanding of the nature of music, its role in society, and the ways in which it has changed over time.
  • Challenges readers to think critically about music using primary sources to demonstrate that the raw materials of history are often open to conflicting interpretations, and that these conflicts can open new perspectives.
  • Integrates the textual narrative with the Anthology of Scores; every work in the Anthology is discussed in the text.
