Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whether from a concert stage or in front of a classroom, Roger Kamien knows how to connect with an audience. It is his unique combination of a performer's musical sensibility and a teacher's understanding of what works with students that has made Music: An Appreciation the most widely-used text of its kind. The text's impeccable scholarship, clear presentation of musical elements and history, carefully chosen repertoire of musical selections, and insightful listening guides have been its hallmarks from the first edition. The revision adds a new text feature designed to help students connect their classroom experience to a wider listening world, and an exciting new online component.

Synopsis:

Through nine editions, Roger Kamien's Music: An Appreciation has become the most widely used text for Music Appreciation and Introduction to Music Literature courses. The author has approached his new ninth edition with the goal of re-examining the scholarship and refreshing the repertoire while maintaining the strengths that have made the book number one--the clear presentation of musical elements, the vivid depiction of music history, the carefully chosen musical examples, the detailed and informative Listening Outlines, and the unsurpassed supplements package.

Synopsis:

What does it take to make a great performance? It takes great music, a great performer and a great instrument. Music: An Appreciation includes some of the greatest music ever created. Roger Kamiens excellence as an interpreter of that music has made his program number one in the market used by over half a million students since its conception. Now, CONNECT Kamien provides the world-class instrument that allows Music: An Appreciation to bring great music to his audience in an extraordinary new way. Music: An Appreciation is the right music, the right interpreter, and the right instrument.
