Summary
This text based on Donald Jay Grout and Claude V. Palisca's A History of Western Music, Ninth Edition, is perfect for those who seek an authoritative, readable text that is more succinct than the parent book. Concise History of Western Music combines Grout and Palisca's uncompromising reliability, scope, and respect for the narrative, while offering many more pedagogical aids, such as chapter preludes and postludes; "Etudes, " excursions that explore the material more deeply than the main text; and "Windows, " boxed discussions of special topics. This book also includes numerous vignettes (quotations by musicians and writers), illustrations, diagrams, music examples, sideheads, chronologies, and a glossary.
