  • The Complete Idiot's Guide to Music Historyby Michael Miller

    DK Publishing 2008; US$ 18.95

    A beautifully composed journey through music history! Music history is a required course for all music students. Unfortunately, the typical music history book is dry and academic, focusing on rote memorization of important composers and works. This leads many to think that the topic is boring, but bestselling author Michael Miller proves that isn't... more...

  • For the Love of Musicby Michael Steinberg; Larry Rothe

    The power of music, the way it works on the mind and heart, remains an enticing mystery. Now two noted writers on classical music, Michael Steinberg and Larry Rothe, explore the allure of this melodious art--not in the clinical terms of social scientists--but through stories drawn from their own experience. In For the Love of Music, Steinberg and Rothe... more...

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    Blending ideas from operations research, music psychology, music theory, and cognitive science, this book aims to tell a coherent story of how tonality pervades our experience, and hence our models, of music. The story is told through the developmental stages of the Spiral Array model for tonality, a geometric model designed to incorporate and represent... more...

  • Music in Print and Beyondby Craig A. Monson; Roberta Montemorra Marvin

    Boydell & Brewer 2013; US$ 90.00

  • The Musical Topicby Raymond Monelle

    Indiana University Press 2006; US$ 48.00

  • Musikgeschichte Dänemarksby Hanns-Peter Mederer

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 32.39

    Vor nicht langer Zeit stellte ein dänischer Repräsentant der klassischen Musik fest: Kein Land in Europa weise eine höhere Komponistendichte auf als seine Heimat. Für die Entwicklung im 20. Jahrhundert kann dieses leicht überspitzte Statement tatsächlich einen gewissen Wahrheitswert beanspruchen. Doch wie sieht es mit den Anfängen und der frühen Neuzeit... more...

  • Musikgeschichte als Geschichte der musikalischen Formwandlungen (E-Book)by Paul Bekker; Andreas Eichhorn

    Georg Olms Verlag 2013; US$ 70.00

    Hauptbeschreibung In Paul Bekkers "Musikgeschichte" verdichten sich die in seinen unmittelbar vorangehenden Schriften entwickelten Teilaspekte zu einer musikgeschichtlichen Gesamtschau, in die auch die Musik seiner Gegenwart integriert ist.

  • On Celestial Musicby Rick Moody

    Little, Brown and Company 2012; US$ 9.99

    Rick Moody has been writing about music as long as he has been writing, and this book provides an ample selection from that output. His anatomy of the word cool reminds us that, in the postwar 40s, it was infused with the feeling of jazz music but is now merely a synonym for neat . "On Celestial Music," which was included in Best American... more...
