The Concise Oxford History of Music, written by one of the world's most respected musicologists, is the one-volume history for anyone seriously interested in the subject. This comprehensive work covers the whole history of music by genre from its first recorded emergence in Egypt to the death of Stravinsky.
Over three hundred musical examples, illustrations, and suggestions for further reading enrich this authoritative volume, and the style id as clear and attractive as all of Abraham's previous writing.
