9780719562556: The Making of Music

James Naughtie traces the history of 1000 years of classical music in this landmark Radio 4 series. Broadcaster and music enthusiast James Naughtie uncovers the roots of our music and explores its historical context. His journey reveals how composers and performers, princes and patrons, and the chance happenings of the past have built a classical tradition that is the soundtrack to our history and tells a glittering and inspiring story. Volume 1 opens with the music from the consecration of Notre Dame in Paris in 1163, explores the changes in Renaissance and Reformation music and introduces the genius of Bach, Mozart and Beethoven. In Volume 2, the starting point is the nineteenth century and the great works of Wagner and Verdi. The twentieth century musical landscape includes two World Wars, the beginnings of Jazz, the Sixties and the impact of technology on the music-making of an extraordinary century. This title is winner of AudioFile Earphones Award. 'The Making of Music proves both entertaining and informative' - "Daily Telegraph". '...presented with such reverence and commitment that it even surpasses the audiobook's exquisite musical excerpts...A superlative listen!' - "AudioFile".

Book Description Hodder Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The making of Music is the story of our musical history, its origins and how it has shaped us. We have all grown up with a common background noise, whether we realise it or not. The tradition of European music that took shape in medieval monasteries, then in churches and courts, and moved into the salons, concert halls and theatres in later centuries, is in our cultural bloodstream. James Naughtie delves into the colourful, turbulent world of music - its characters, traditions and mysterious power - in a delightfully lively and personal way. His story is richly peopled and animated by moments of drama: what it was like at the first night of The Rite of Spring, when the dancers could neither hear their instructions nor could Stravinsky continue conducting because the booing was so loud; how it must have felt for Beethoven to scratch Napoleon s name off the dedication page of the Eroica Symphony because he believed the emperor to have betrayed the French Revolution. As when presenting the Proms, James Naughtie brings to The Making of Music that particular blend of expertise and approachability set to delight the aficionado and the uninitiated alike.
