This book is a guide to every aspect of the long and ongoing story of Western classical music. It reveals in a stimulating and lively way the exceptionally gifted individuals who have shaped the musical landscape over a millennia, from the chanting monks of the middle ages to the bold exponents of minimalism of the last 100 years. Personal and creative profiles of composers, both major and minor, form the heart of the book and offer rich insights into the qualities of their music and an ideal introduction to the range and diversity of the Classical repertoire.
