Editorial Reviews


"Sadly, Flora Levin passed away; her death deprives the field of ancient music and music theory of an original and deep thinker. This volume offers provocative interpretations of Aristoxenian music theory while providing a context in modern mathematics, philosophy, and musicology for the Aristoxenian and other schools of ancient music theory. Levin had the ability to make intellectual history seem an adventure and wrote this book to be both accessible and of interest to non-specialists." --BMCR

Book Description

In this book, Flora Levin explores how and why music was so important to the ancient Greeks. She examines the distinctions that they drew between the theory of music as an art ruled by number and the theory wherein number is held to be ruled by the art of music.
