Description

Scholarly and comprehensive, this acclaimed single-volume study covers the whole history of music from its first recorded emergence in early civilization to the death of Stravinsky. Drawing on his considerable knowledge of composers and compositions, Dr Abraham offers penetrating insights into the historical development of styles. He also discusses non-Western music - that of Eastern Asia, India, Islam, and Africa. Illustrated throughout, the book also contains numerous musical examples.show more
