Description
Even at the beginning of the new millennium, the label "20th-century music" often inspires apprehension in audiences; although Debussy, Vaughan Williams, and Stravinsky have become concert hall favorites, other composers like Schoenberg, Boulez, and Takemitsu are too often regarded as strange and unapproachable. This book demystifies the subject of modern music, describing the many varied and innovative musical styles that flourished in the last century and putting the music in its historical and social context. It includes profiles of 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 superb Naxos musical recordings online at a dedicated website, including works by Ravel, Schoenberg, Ives, Stravinsky, Bartók, Shostakovich, Messiaen, Britten, Cage, and John Williams.
