KNOW-IT-ALL CLASSICAL MUSIC


KNOW-IT-ALL CLASSICAL MUSIC

DR JOANNE CORMAC    Book Number: 90577    Product format: Paperback

Each of the seven sections has its own glossary explaining unfamiliar terms and one profile of a maestro - singer, musician or conductor - a true master of their art. The 50 topics themselves are easily assimilated in just under a minute using just 300 words and one picture and many of the topics focus on particular composers or pieces. It is a beautifully visual story of classical music, its institutions, performers, technology and audiences spotlighting patronage or historically informed performance, developments such as recording and giving a sense of how classical music has developed over time from the earliest instruments and monastic plainchant or chant such as the unaccompanied monophonic vocal Gregorian chant as sung in Roman Catholic Church services right through to electronic music of this century. Features include Yo Yo Ma, film music, the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky, and the basics of the musical score, the orchestra and of course Mozart and Beethoven and Vivaldi to Leonard Bernstein. Illustrated with harmonious graphics, 160pp large softback.
