CHALLENGE TO MUSICAL TRADITION

Some background is necessary for the reader of this book -- so the market will be primarily for students of musical composition and for trained musicians. It is a sound, highly specialized analysis of the development of musical composition from the 17th century to modern times. A scholarly, richly documented work, with detailed studies of key composers significant for their innovations:- Johann Sebastian Bach, Phillipp Emanual Bach, Haydn, Wagner, Debussy, Schonberg, Stravinsky. Many musical examples.
