Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:

Renowned for its comprehensive coverage of genres and styles in Western music from antiquity to the present, A History or Western Music has secured its place―through six editions and for almost a half-century―as the definitive resource for every music student.

Maintaining the authority and breadth of coverage that have always defined this classic text, J. Peter Burkholder has meticulously revised and restructured the text to make it more accessible for today’s students. This revision places a stronger emphasis on social and historical context and adds substantially expanded pedagogy and striking four-color design.
