FEATURES A central repertory of musical works Concise History of Western Music deepens students' understanding of a central repertory of works and the forces that shaped them. The text provides detailed coverage of every work on the companion 6-CD set, and enriches the historical and cultural context for key events, individuals, and musical genres. Balanced coverage of genres and eras The Fourth Edition expands coverage of instrumental music throughout the book, reexamines the end of the Baroque period, includes more large-scale chamber and orchestral repertoire, and moves nineteenth century opera between the early and late romantics to streamline chronology.

Concise contextual overviews and summaries frame each chapter, while Music in Context and Innovations boxes set musical developments within the broader context of Western history and culture. Timelines and four-color maps locate musical events in a specific time and place. Outstanding pedagogy promotes student learning Outstanding pedagogical features help students to highlight and synthesize essential information: chapter outlines provide an overview of the key topics, composers, and works featured in the chapter; composer biography boxes highlight the lives of key composers; Innovation boxes focus on key musical innovations that have fundamentally changed how we create, disseminate, and consume music; and Music in Performance sidebars make students aware of the problems and issues inherent in interpreting a musical work, and suggest possible reconstructions based on contemporaneous evidence.

(Meredith Music Resource). This incredible book by one of the world's foremost authorities on conducting contains no conducting patterns, and no advice on how to conduct any piece. Instead, it focuses on the skills, knowledge and experiences needed to become and function as a conductor-teacher. "This text is a 'must have' for all serious musicians. It captures the legacy and wisdom of one of the most important conductors of our time. This is what can happen when a focused and inquisitive mind meets up with a uniquely creative imagination." Eugene Migliaro Corporon, Director of Wind Studies, College of Music University of North Texas (a href="http://youtu.be/JM6g4KBA4Fk" target="_blank")Click here for a YouTube video on On Becoming a Conductor(/a)
