The Definitive Work on European Music
on December 18, 2015
I had a paper to write on the evolution of European music. If you have to write a paper like I, or if you have intellectual curiosity, I would wholly recommend this book. It spans from the Ancient Greeks to Schoenberg, and the detail and references provided are simply astounding. You could take a whole year of classes based off of what is in this book. Don't let it's publication date fool you, this book shines above all others. Truly the definitive work on European music.
