Content descriptions

General Note: "New edition of two quite different earlier companions...Oxford companion to music by Percy Scholes...The new Oxford companion to music edited by Denis Arnold."--Preface.
Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: A comprehensive single-volume reference to the Western musical tradition. Hundreds of entries explore all aspects of music theory, performance practice, composers, artists, instruments, notation, and more. Annotation. First published in 1938, "The Oxford Companion to Music" has been the first choice for authoritative information on all aspects of music. Now, 17 years since the last edition, the "Companion" is here to serve a new generation of students, teachers, performers, concert goers, record collectors, and music lovers.Completely revised and updated by a distinguished team of contributors, the "Oxford Companion to Music" features more than 1,000 new entries than the previous edition; more than 70 percent of the entire text is either new or entirely rewritten. Here, in articles that range from clear, concise definitions of musical ideas and terms to extended surveys of musical forms and styles, is authoritative coverage of virtually every musical subject. Embracing the world of music in all its variety--including jazz, popular music, and dance--the "Companion" offers a concentrated focus on the Western classic tradition, from the Middle Ages to the present day. More than 8,000 articles sweep across an extraordinary range of subjects: composers, performers, conductors, individual works, instruments and notation, forms and genres. From the study of music--theory, aesthetics, scholarship--to the way it is performed and disseminated, the "Companion" provides comprehensive, accessible coverage of music in all its artistic, historical, cultural, and social dimensions. Comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date, and designed throughout for clarity and accessibility, the new "Oxford Companion to Music," like every edition before it, will immediately become an indispensable resource for all who wish to enrich their love and knowledge of music.
