9780131931114: History of Music in Western Culture (includes 6 CDs)

Six compact discs complement the text and Anthology of Scores. Produced by Naxos of America in close coordination with Prentice Hall, these recordings draw on the resources of many different recording labels and feature some of the most distinguished artists and ensembles of our time, such as the Gothic Voices, Anonymous 4, the Hilliard Ensemble, the Orlando Consort, Les Arts Florissants, the Concerto Italiano, the English Baroque Soloists, and the Quatuor Mosaiques. Representative soloists include Paul O'Dette, Louis Bagger, Emily van Evera, Malcolm Bilsson, and Jessye Norman. The discs are arranged chronologically and mirror the content and structure of the anthology.

From the Back Cover:

  • 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.
