Publisher: Norton, W. W. & Company, Inc.
Thoroughly revised and updated with outstanding new pedagogy, Concise History of Western Music, Second Edition, provides an authoritative yet succinct survey of Western music history. Based on Grout and Palisca's classic A History of Western Music, Sixth Edition, Professor Hanning's text retains the uncompromising reliability and scope of its parent volume while presenting material in readable prose, with more pedagogy and fewer details. Lavishly illustrated with maps, timelines, color plates, and musical examples, Concise History of Western Music, Second Edition, delivers authoritative scholarship in an accessible and engaging format.
