    From anonymous 10th-century troubadours to world-renowned 20th-century composers, this comprehensive commentary explores the roots of the most influential music genres of our time. Essential listening for students and lovers of great music, A History of Music in Western Civilization features music performed by world-renowned orchestras and enlightening discussions by 15 prominent music authorities, including Christopher Hogwood, Dr. Wilfrid Mellers, and others.

    "a nice overview"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book and felt the earlier reviews were unfair. If you expect to learn everything there is to know about music history in 10 hours, then your expectations are too high. This is a good starting point if you don't know much about classical music, or it can be a refresher if you are like me and have studied the subject in the past.

    The book gives you the framework and the music recommendations to expand your knowledge. To learn more, you'll want to spend time exploring the music that is referenced.
