"While many of our incoming graduate students tend to be adept at identifying styles and composers in listening exams, they tend to freeze up when a score is put in front of them. . . . The anthology goes a long way toward helping to address this general shortcoming in the training of undergraduate music majors."

Cengage provides a range of supplements that are updated in coordination with the main title selection. For more information about these supplements, contact your Learning Consultant.

FOR INSTRUCTORS

Music in Western Civilization, Media Update

ISBN: 9780495572732
Wright/Simms was the first book in a generation that students could read and fully understand--on their own. Building on that excellence, the new MUSIC IN WESTERN CIVILIZATION, MEDIA UPDATE continues to revolutionize the teaching of music history by presenting music in its cultural context in a way that is clear and easy to understand. Offering superior scholarship, this innovative text places music in the context of the politics, personalities, arts, and humanities of each period of Western history. The importance of the cultural setting of many composers and genres is evidenced by such chapters as "Richard Strauss in Berlin," "Johann Sebastian Bach: Vocal Music in Leipzig," and "Music in Medieval Paris: Polyphony at Notre Dame." Both flexible and comprehensive, the text includes 83 brief chapters--allowing instructors to pick and choose which material they wish to emphasize--and covers all major composers, styles, and genres. It discusses a full 224 pieces, with additional commentary and complete musical scores included in an accompanying two-volume Anthology prepared by Timothy Roden. Recordings of all 224 pieces are collectively available on the accompanying CD sets, and student exercises and analysis questions are found in a companion student workbook. The MEDIA UPDATE also adds coverage of important composers, compositions, trends, and primary sources. Its Web-based Resource Center includes a repository of additional material--music, composer biographies, primary source readings, musical debates--that enables instructors to further customize their courses to best fit their needs.
