Very detailed analysis of the music and historical setting of the Classic Period that provides contrasting viewpoints surrounding the time period, influences, and parallel development of the other arts.

If you love Classic music and would like to learn about its context and development, this is a great survey

This book is primarily used in classrooms for students taking a survey course on music in the Classic Period (just before Haydn through Beethoven and Schubert – these things are never cleanly cut); it is also wonderfully suited for the general reader and enthusiast who would like to appreciate their favorite music in a more fully developed context. It is comprehensive in that it includes the Classic period from its earliest beginnings through its transition into the Romantic Age, but it does not cover everything these is to talk about in these most important decades.

The cleverness and clarity join forces!

This text offers interesting standpoints around the interpretation ‘s character through the well defined Periods From the Baroque to Classicism Pauly emits wisdom and concrete observations with astonishing lucidity and broad domain of the thematic material. Crucial illustrations and diagrams that support his marginal notes and intelligent personal proposals.

Good Book
