Overview

Organized chronologically by musical era, this comprehensive, authoritative, and accessible volume contains a dazzling display of information, analysis, and color, adding up to a major new learning tool and ongoing reference source to inform and entertain students, scholars, and all lovers of classical music.

Each chapter features an introduction to the period, its key composers and other personalities, musical styles, forms, and instruments. Six thematic strands developed throughout the book are identified by a series of icons at the top of each spread. These elucidating themes-designed to expand the reader's knowledge of various aspects of classical music and provide a context within each era-are "Women in Music," "Arts & Culture," "Inside the Music," "The Voice," "Performance," and "Influences." A Listening Guide for each era covers details of orchestration, instrumentation, timing, and full historical background, and an extensive discography and bibliography are also included.

About the Author
Stanley Sadie, editor of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, the unsurpassed musical reference source, was a professor at Trinity College of Music in London for ten years, music critic of The Times (London) for seventeen years, and music consultant to some twenty-two television programs. Widely considered one of the world's most eminent authorities in music publishing, he is based in London, England. Vladimir Ashkenazy is a world-renowned virtuoso pianist and conductor.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
A team of writers and scholars compiled the Encyclopedia Of Classical Music, an in-depth encyclopedia of classical music which packs in over 900 color illustrations to accompany a thorough history and survey which extends from ancient through modern times. Introductions for each major period includes surveys of key composers, changes in musical styles, forms, and analysis of instruments. Recommended CD listings, a glossary and extensive discography and bibliography, and subject and name indexes make this valuable both as a reference and for browsing.
