Cassell Companion to 20th Century Music by David Pickering

Book Description

Classical music. Blues and jazz and rock 'n' roll. Broadway musicals and country and western. In the 20th century, composers and musicians have produced an astounding range of styles, providing listeners with a wider choice than ever before. The variety of articles included in this essential reference mirrors this diversity: you'll find biographies and assessments of key composers; essays on performers, bands, and orchestras; a history of genres; and insights into the multi-million-dollar music industry. Plus, there are definitions of technical terms, slang words, nicknames, and forays into some of the quirkier paths of modern music. With over 3000 entertaining articles, virtually no (Rolling) stone goes unturned! 416 pages, 6 x 9 1/4.
