Book Description

2 Jun 2008
Even at the beginning of the new millennium, the words 'twentieth-century music' often inspire apprehension in audiences. While composers like Debussy, Vaughan Williams and Stravinsky have become concert-hall favourites, others such as Schoenberg, Boulez and Takemitsu are too often regarded as strange and unapproachable. Discover Music of the Twentieth Century is a comprehensive and easily digestible guide, leading us through the diverse, innovative and controversial musical history of this era. By describing the many different musical styles that flourished in the twentieth century and putting the music in its historical and social context, this book demystifies the whole subject of 'modern' music. Includes access to a dedicated website containing 2 1/2 hours of musical extracts.

A very good reference to all 20th century composers and how they are placed in the music of their time. This book is also a good incentive to read more and explore the revolutionary changes that took place in classical music of the 20th century.
