Format: Paperback
The Classical Era embraces what is commonly thought of as the centre of the Western musical tradition, the music of Haydn and Mozart, the creators of the symphony and the string quartet and the first great operatic classics. Each chapter focuses on the musical activities of a particular city, the music is explained in terms of the prevailing social, economic and political climate.
