Tenth International Student Edition
Grout, Donald Jay
Palisca, Claude V.
The book and anthology traverse more than 1000 years of history, music and musicians. The focus throughout is on understanding the connections between music and its context--whether musical, cultural or historical. Students learn to apply this knowledge to music they hear, play or study today.
THE ANTHOLOGY OFFERS 229 COMPELLING WORKS SUPPORTED BY THE PEDAGOGY STUDENTS NEED
This companion anthology in three volumes provides the scores for every major work discussed in the text. The new edition offers 36 new or expanded selections, from new medieval chant examples to 21st-century works by Caroline Shaw and Thomas Ades. Recordings of each work are available for streaming and download.
CUTTING-EDGE SCHOLARSHIP MADE ACCESSIBLE FOR UNDERGRADUATES
Expert reviewers pored over every chapter to provide detailed recommendations for the revision. Peter Burkholder carefully sifted through these reviews, adapting and integrating suggestions to fit within his clear narrative - always mindful that he is addressing undergraduate readers. Every chapter in the book reflects this process in ways both great and small.
