The Book of Music A Visual Guide to Musical Appreciation

Music is as many-faceted as a fine-cut diamond, each facet presenting a different approach to the same central enigma: organized sound. The Book of Music invites you to examine some of the facets of this wide-ranging and complex subject. Its six main sections are: *From Nature to Music, explaining how music is build up from pitch and time relationships, the structure of scales and time values, and how musical notation works. *The Heritage of Music, describing the development of music from the earliest times to the present day with chapters on song and choral music, opera, dance, folk, jazz, pop and music of non-Western cultures. *Music-Makers, presenting instruments of every type, their method of sound-prduction, history and distribution throughout the world. *Listening to Music, highlighting some of the main means by which music reaches the listening public: orchestra, conductor and ensemble-players, recording and broadcasting, concert halls and opera-houses and musical education. *Chronology, a time-table showing how musical activity began and developed, with composers lives and a selection of their works placed in an international historical context.*The Glossaries, providing a quick reference in alphabetical sequence to composers, musical terms and musical instruments. Superbly illustrated throughout with photographs and original drawings. The Book of Music will appeal to all music-lovers, whether their interest in music is dilettante, highly informed or simply ripe for re-awakening.
