About this title


Widely praised by instructors for its captivating presentation of musical concepts, this landmark music-appreciation text continues to help transform students into active, insightful listeners. Authors Joseph Kerman and Gary Tomlinson, two of America’s leading musicologists and music educators, are both known as inspirational and wide-ranging teachers. Their diverse experience, lively writing style, and clear explanations of musical concepts make music approachable and engaging for students in the introductory course. Their text continually offers the highest quality recordings, the clearest Listening Charts, and the richest cultural contexts to inform students’ listening. Now the sixth edition of Listen extends its proven approach into the multimedia environment with new music, new media, and a new look, making it easier than ever to discover the best way to listen.


"The musical terms are defined in ways that make sense to students, and difficult concepts are explained succinctly and with musical examples... Kerman has done a wonderful job in writing about music in ways that are engaging. He has selected works that are both significant and intriguingEit is simply the best text I have used." "The level of the material in the Beyond Europe segments seems perfect for students in a course like this. It's intelligent and engaging. I like the fact that the authors not only describe musical cultures and practices, but also raise issues such as cultural colonialism, syncretism, homogenization of pop musics, and globalization." "With Kerman's new listening packages, we are treated to the most up-to-date, acclaimed performances of music from all periods."
