Taking a critical perspective, this text sets the details of music, the chronological sweep of figures, works, & musical ideas, within the larger context of world affairs & cultural history. Written by an authoritative, opinionated, & controversial figure in musicology, The Oxford History of Western Music provides a critical aesthetic position with respect to individual works, a context in which each composition may be evaluated & remembered. Taruskin combines an emphasis on structure & form.
