Offering an accessible approach to four centuries of Western classical music, Jon Paxman's monumental overview is broken into 50-year increments, tracing the progress from medieval to modern with particular reference to genres and the composers' nationalities. A corresponding chronology goes into great detail, charting important milestones in the lives of individual composers, conductors, and performers, and the book contains an extensive glossary as well as hundreds of photographs and examples of period art.

"A great reference tool for anyone who wants to explore the history of music." —Philip Glass
