9780205932481: History of Music in Western Culture, Books a la Carte Edition (4th Edition)

Learn the History of Music, through Music.

 

A History of Music in Western Culture, 4/e is based on the premise that the best way to convey the history of Western music is to focus on specific works of music.  The text is structured around a carefully selected repertory of music that reflects the development of the art form throughout time. Mark Evan Bonds helps readers gain a broad understanding of the nature of music, its role in society, and the ways in which these have changed over time. A History of Music in Western Culture challenges students to think critically about the nature of music and its past.

 

Once familiar with a representative body of music, students can better grasp the evolution of musical style and music's changing uses within the Western tradition. Students will have a sound basis from which to explore other musical works. This text builds its narrative around the core repertory represented in the Anthology of Scores and the corresponding sets of compact discs.

Review:

 

“Well written, a good balance between purely musical topics and relevant extra-musical topics.”

        -  Jim Davis, SUNY Fredonia

 

“the chapters unfold and flow with a good pace and great clarity. The illustrations and the tables and windows animate and diversify the text greatly. The tone is definitely appropriate in its professionality, authority, and competence.”

        - Sara Waltz, University of the Pacific

 

 “A comprehensive history which addresses music within the social and cultural climate from which it comes.”

        - Eric Wood, University of the Pacific

 

“Great on features, readability and coverage. I (and my students) enjoy all the features. They really make the book come alive.”

        -  Karl Hinterbichler, University of New Mexico
