Product Description

A comprehensive and accessible visual history of music - from prehistory to the present day
Why did jazz go Latin? And how did blues influence rock? Find out how music has shaped the world from prehistory to the present day.
Classical or rock, everyone has their favourite music style, but how did your top choice come about? Music is a compelling and richly illustrated history of the most unifying art form in the world. Explore the roots of all genres from chants of the middle ages through the grandeur of the classical period to the modern rhythm of blues, jazz, hip-hop, and pop. Music includes illustrated histories of instruments and listening suggestions for each musical genre. Spectacular galleries display families of instruments from around the world, while special features showcase the evolution of key instruments, such as the piano and the guitar, and profile iconic innovators such as Mozart, Billie Holiday, and David Bowie.
