Description :

Language: English Brand New Book. The Oxford History of Western Music is a magisterial survey of the traditions of Western music by one of the most prominent and provocative musicologists of our time. This text illuminates, through a representative sampling of masterworks, those themes, styles, and currents that give shape and direction to each musical age. Taking a critical perspective, this text sets the details of music, the chronological sweep of figures, works, and musical ideas, within the larger context of world affairs and cultural history. Written by an authoritative, opinionated, and controversial figure in musicology, The Oxford History of Western Music provides a critical aesthetic position with respect to individual works, a context in which each composition may be evaluated and remembered. Taruskin combines an emphasis on structure and form with a discussion of relevant theoretical concepts in each age, to illustrate how the music itself works, and how contemporaries heard and understood it. It also describes how the context of each stylistic period-key cultural, historical, social, economic, and scientific events-influenced and directed compositional choices. N° de réf. du libraire

Critique: This monumental, nearly 4,000-page history from one of today's outstanding musicologists deserves a place on everybody's shelf. ( Philip Borg-Wheeler, Classical Music)

The discounted price represents extraordinarily good value for what I would happily recommend as book of the decade. ( Philip Borg-Wheeler, Classical Music)

Book of the decade. ( Philip Borg-Wheeler, Classical Music.)

This monumental 4,000 page history from one of today's outstanding musicologists deserves a place on everybody's shelf. ( Philip Borg-Wheeler, Classical Music)

Marvellously awash with judicious reflection on the latest scholarship...a compelling easy-to-read narrative. ( The Economist)
