Music An Illustrated History - Max Wade-Matthews

USED Hard Cover in EXCELLENT Condition

I am a fan of beautifully produced reference books, this quaint volume is one of them. Providing a short chapter of about two to four pages on every aspect of music and music-making, this is certainly an interesting text following the evolution of the classical orchestra and other music genres and groups. An appealing aspect of the book is the numerous photos, illustrations and period artwork displaying musicians, composers and instruments included with the various articles and topics. The text is also filled with interesting factoids such as quotes, biographies of musicians, note / pitch range of the major instruments, etc. Instruments and orchestra ensembles from other cultures are explored as well. As far as I can tell, I don't think they have missed any of the major instruments, both ancient and modern.

If you are intrigued by musical instruments, their history and the musicians / composers that played them, do buy it. It will make a nice addition to any music-lover's library. Please click here to ask a question
