From the music of the ancient Middle East and early Christian church, through Baroque, Rococo, Romanticism to major 20th century movements like Neo-classicism, Serialism and Minimalism, this work traces the evolution of Western classical music. With reference to the instruments, players and key works of every period, and special spreads with biographies of leading composers and a time-line of their greatest works, this is a celebration of music performed and enjoyed - via the technology of recording and broadcasting - by more people today than ever before in its long history.About the Author:
John Bailie is a freelance author and editor and has worked on many books including the Hamlyn History of Classical Music and the Hamlyn Guide to English Usage.
