Music Since the First World WarBook - 1977
This survey of the most significant modern composers and their techniques has become a standard work on the constantly shifting musical developments during the greater part of the twentieth century. In a concise and accessible narrative, Whittall examines the continued but declining commitmentto tonality, twelve-note serialism, and the gradual emergence of new aesthetic attitudes and concepts of musical form.
