Penguin, 01.10.2013. - 480 страница

Classical or rock, everyone has their favourite musical style, but how did your top choice come about? Why did jazz go Latin, or blues influence rock? Find out in Music, a visual history of the most unifying art form in the world.

Every musical revolution from bone flutes to electronica and from jazz to hip-hop is charted in this visually stunning history of music. Key musical innovators like Mozart, Elvis and Johnny Cash are profiled with biographies that detail their lives and works and every development from baroque to rock and roll is covered. Music includes illustrated histories of instruments and listening suggestions for each musical genre, plus a free digital audio offering with audio samples of instruments and musical styles.

Whether you are young or old, into hip-hop or opera, Music will hit the right note with you.
