Classical Music 1600–2000 – A Chronology now published


Several essays by Thomas on early 20th-century music are now available as part of a pioneering new reference volume Classical Music 1600–2000 – A Chronology. The book, edited by Jon Paxman, interprets four centuries of Western classical music, considering its evolution from different perspectives. Early reviews have given the book a huge endorsement:

An excellent resource for students, teachers and composers at any stage in their development.” Sir John Tavener

A great reference tool for anyone who wants to explore the history of music.” Philip Glass

Lavishly designed … allows the listener and the student to enjoy both detailed and very zoomed-out snapshots of the overlapping political and personal conflicts that shaped musical history.” Nico Muhly
