THE ESSENTIAL LISTENING TO MUSIC draws on the strengths of author Craig Wright's larger volumes--outstanding listening pedagogy, clear writing, state-of-the-art online ancillaries--and delivers them in a style that is designed to connect with today's students and inspire a lifelong appreciation of music. In this concise book, scholar and master-teacher Wright focuses on the key concepts and works presented within a typical Music Appreciation course, avoids lengthy discussions on side topics, and includes a set of integrated digital resources that make it easier--and fun--for students to master the material. THE ESSENTIAL LISTENING TO MUSIC is approximately 60 percent shorter than the large volume and is priced much lower than our larger texts. This chronological text discusses musical examples from each historical period, each discussed within its social context. This provides students with a sense of a piece's construction, as well as its historical and cultural meaning. THE ESSENTIAL LISTENING TO MUSIC includes a wide range of resources designed to develop listening skills and challenge students: a free Introduction to Listening CD, packaged with each copy of the text; Listening Exercises built into the book and online (unique to Wright's text); streaming music ; computer-enhanced Active Listening Guides; and listening quizzes for all of the music in the text. All of these are included within CourseMate--for use with or without your school's LMS. Students can download all of the music that is covered in the text -- directly to a music library -- using the Sony Music Download Card that is bound into the book. A full set of lecture-based digital resources provides you with the tools you need to prepare for class, and an optional two-CD set is also available. As an instructor, you can also customize THE ESSENTIAL LISTENING TO MUSIC to fit your specific needs by including pop and global music from the larger edition of LISTENING TO MUSIC.

The Essential Canon of Classical Music

Author: David Dubal
Publisher: North Point Press
ISBN: 9781466807266
Release Date: 2003-10-24
Genre: Music

The ultimate guide to classical composers and their music-for both the novice and the experienced listener Music, according to Aaron Copland, can thrive only if there are "gifted listeners." But today's listeners must choose between classical and rock, opera and rap, and the choices can seem overwhelming at times. In The Essential Canon of Classical Music, David Dubal comes to the aid of the struggling listener and provides a cultural-literacy handbook for classical music. Dubal identifies the 240 composers whose works are most important to an understanding of classical music and offers a comprehensive, chronological guide to their lives and works. He has searched beyond the traditional canon to introduce readers to little-known works by some of the most revered names in classical music-Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Schubert-as well as to the major works of lesser-known composers. In a spirited and opinionated voice, Dubal seeks to rid us of the notion of "masterpieces" and instead to foster a new generation of master listeners. The result is an uncommon collection of the wonders classical music has to offer.
