'This must have been a very difficult book to edit, and Simon Keefe (together with David Wyn Jones, who planned the volume) deserves unqualified congratulations for having engaged the work of so many gifted contributors and for having lurked in the detail (as it were) to such good effect ... one cannot doubt the immense significance of this volume in its authoritative engagement with a repertory that speaks at every turn to the central importance of music as a vital expression of eighteenth-century thought.' Music and Letters
The eighteenth century arguably boasts a more remarkable group of significant musical figures, and a more engaging combination of genres, styles and aesthetic orientations than any century before or since. This History provides a comprehensive survey of eighteenth-century music, examining little-known repertories, works and musical trends alongside more familiar ones.See all Product Description
