Soundscapes Classical Case Studies from the Western Classical Repertory

In Soundscapes Classical, twenty works from the Western classical repertoirytwo for each chapter of Soundscapesare approached within the same framework as selections drawn from the other musical traditional in the book. The setting, sound, and significance of each is discussed, allowing the instructor to substitute as many as desired for the case studies in the main text. The works are drawn from all eras, and those chosen for chapters 5-10 fall chronologically into the traditional periods of Western music, medieval through twentieth century. To insure easy access, all of the compositions are contained on the 8-CD set of The Norton Recordings that accompanies The Enjoyment of Music, Eighth Edition.
