Presenting music in its cultural context in a way that is clear and easy to understand, MUSIC IN WESTERN CIVILIZATION, MEDIA UPDATE covers all the major musical styles, genres, and composers in 83 brief yet intriguing chapters that you can read in a single sitting. Shorter chapters provide more opportunity for comprehension and review, while tools like boldface key terms and concise chapter summaries help you understand concepts quickly and clearly, and analytical questions from the workbook ensure you are well prepared for exams. Full-color maps and photographs enliven each chapter, and boxed essays illustrate that the study of music history is essential to the practice and performance of music today. The text discusses a full 224 pieces, with additional commentary and complete musical scores included in an accompanying two-volume Anthology. High-quality recordings of all 224 pieces of music are collectively included on accompanying CD sets, which can become the basis for your own professional and personal library of Western music. Integrated with the text, a robust online Resource Center includes additional coverage of composers, compositions, trends, primary source readings, musical debates, and more--highlighted by icons in the book.
