The narrative of A History of Western Frout naturally focuses on the musical works, styles, genres, and ideas that have proven most influential, enduring, and significant—but it also encompasses a wide range of music, from religious to secular, from serious to humorous, from art music to popular music, and from Europe to the Americas.
With a six-part structure emphasizing the music’s reception and continued influence, Burkholder’s narrative establishes a social and historical context for each repertoire to reveal its legacy and its significance today. This book serves as a wonderful introduction to the history of European and American art music.
The book is structured in an interesting way. Brout of being a simple chronology of music history Who are we to review the Bible of western classical music history? What I do like: What I don’t like: Middles of chapters get bogged down in theory and analysis – this is really only going to be comprehensible to undergrads if they already have a theory class or two under their belt.
Women, minorities, and popular musics don’t make sense in the narrative not that they shouldn’t be there, of course – they are poorly glued onto the edges rather than integrated grouy the narrative. The CD set doesn’t always have the most representative pieces of the concepts being described – and many of the pieces discussed in depth in the book don’t show up on the CD. Some canonical composers and pieces are mentioned and said to be great, but there’s no explanation as to why – we just have to trust the authors.
Lastly – I don’t recommend this for a gen ed music history. And you’ll waste time searching your school’s music library if you have one or YouTube for better and more complete musical examples. Donald Jay Grout, late professor of music at Cornell University, also wrote a standard history of opera.
Among his many publications are a history of Baroque music and a collection of scholarly essays on Italian Renaissance music.
