$30.00

A masterful investigation of the close interrelationships between music and intellectual history

Music and Ideas in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries shows Claude Palisca--a paragon of music scholarship and education--at the height of his powers, discussing the relationships between musical style and intellectual history, the influence of humanism on the revival of music theory, and competing notions of style. This essential summation of Palisca's life work was nearly finished by his death in 2001, and was brought to completion by Thomas J. Mathiesen.
