By far the best read on the evolution of western music. My only regret that it ends from Copland view in the mid 1950's.. we are close to a hundred years on now and a more detailed view of the impact of technology, cultural styles mixing beyond the classical orientation would have been like having port after the meal.

Originally published in 1939, still relevant! Makes a good read and provides a good and different perspective for those interested in getting as much as possible from listening, enjoying and understanding music. Highly recommended

It is a very good book to listen to Aaron Copeland speaking of the love of his life music. It may be for some folk too deep, they would be better listening to his music, and interpreting it to themselves.
