Music in the Twentieth Century

Back to Music

Editor: Arnold Whittall

This series - now called Music Since 1900 - offers a wide perspective on music and musical life in the twentieth century. Books range from historical and biographical studies concentrating on the context in which composers were writing, to analytical and critical studies concerned with the nature of musical language and questions of compositional process. The importance given to context is also reflected in studies dealing with, for example, the patronage, publishing, and promoting of new music, and in accounts of the musical life of particular countries.
