O desenvolvimento da música

Artigaço de Waldmann a propósito de fazer uma resenha do novo livro do músico e crítico de música Charles Rosen, Music and Sentiment. O desenvolvimento da música - do barroco ao início do século 20 - é exemplificado com vídeos diversos que vão ilustrando as abobrinhas do texto. Como diz a rapaziada, Show!

Sentimental Education
By Greg Waldmann

BTW - no link abaixo pode-se fazer download do livro de Rosen que nos traz Haydn, Mozart e Beethoven em maiores detalhes. Como diz a rapaziada, É só alegria!

The Classical Style: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven
Charles Rosen
W. W. Norton 1998 533 pages DjVu 11,8 MB

A greatly expanded edition of the National Book Award-winning masterpiece by a world-class pianist and writer on music. This outstanding book treating the three most beloved composers of the Vienna School is basic to any study of Classical-era music. Drawing on his rich experience and intimate familiarity with the works of these giants, Charles Rosen presents his keen insights in clear and persuasive language. For this expanded edition, now available in paperback for the first time, Rosen has provided a new, 64-page chapter on the later years of Beethoven and the musical conventions he inherited from Haydn and Mozart. The author has also written an extensive new preface in which he responds to other writers who have commented on his ideas.
