Description
Though all orchestral music is often deemed "classical music," the classical era itself is generally regarded as the period from the mid-18th century to the early 19th, when the art, literature and architecture of ancient Greece and Rome were being re-discovered and re-interpreted. It was also a time of enormous social change and political unrest, culminating in the French Revolution. As this book shows, these creative and turbulent forces are reflected throughout classical music, in works by Mozart, Haydn, Stamitz, J.C. Bach, Boccherini, Gluck, Gossec, C.P.E. Bach, and Beethoven. It provides profiles of these and other major composers, black and white illustrations, and a timeline of concurrent events in music, history, art, and literature, as well as links within the text to 2 hours of pertinent Naxos musical recordings.
