History of Western Music

£24.99

Product description

In the half century since its first publication in 1960, Donald Jay Grout's History of Western Music has established itself as the best single-volume introduction to the subject for general readers and students alike. Over the years the original text has been scrupulously and skilfully revised, updated and expanded in order to reflect developments in scholarship.
History of Western Music is a story about where music in the Western tradition came from and how it has changed over the centuries from ancient times to the present. The story is broadened to encompass more music from the Americas, including jazz and popular music, while preserving an emphasis on art music.
Includes more than 40 colour illustrations, glossary of terms, list of further reading and index.
Pictorial boards are made up of a burgundy leather spine with gilt titles to spine. On front and rear boards are images in gold, maroon and black outlines of various musical instruments. Inside pages are in an excellent condition. The book also has a burgundy slip case.
