In this companion to his popular Introducing Music Otto Karolyi offers a lively and comprehensive guide to modern music and provides the reader with some technical understanding of what happens when a twentieth-century composition is being performed. He looks at the ways in which modern music has moved away from traditional ideas of, for example, form, tonality, harmony, rhythm, orchestration and notation. Through careful and detailed explanation of this evolution he illuminates the works of composers such as Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Bartok and many other musical innovators who have broken away from traditional formulae in their composition.
