Eighteenth Century Music in its cultural, social, and intellectual contexts. John Rices Music in the Eighteenth Century takes the reader on an engrossing Grand Tour of Europes musical centers, from Naples, to London, Berlin, Vienna, Prague, and St.MoreEighteenth Century Music in its cultural, social, and intellectual contexts. John Rices Music in the Eighteenth Century takes the reader on an engrossing Grand Tour of Europes musical centers, from Naples, to London, Berlin, Vienna, Prague, and St.

Petersburg --with a side trip to the colonial New World. Against the backdrop of Europes largely peaceful division into Catholic and Protestant realms, Rice shows how learned and galant styles developed and commingled. While considering Mozart, Haydn, and early Beethoven in depth, he broadens his focus to assess the contributions of lesser-known but significant figures like Johann Adam Hiller, Francois-Andre Philidor, and Anna Bon. Western Music in Context: A Norton History comprises six volumes of moderate length, each written in an engaging style by a recognized expert.

Authoritative and current, the series examines music in the broadest sense--as sounds notated, performed, and heard--focusing not only on composers and works, but also on broader social and intellectual currents.
