About the book:

A welcome new edition of this now standard work is available in paperback for the first time. Fully revised by Stephen J. Pettitt, respected music critic and author, "The World of Twentieth-Century Music" is the essential companion. New forms, new instruments and new sounds have emerged in the course of this century, blending with the old to produce major works that will stand with the significant creations of all time. In one of the most comprehensive studies of modern music ever published, David Ewen authoritatively and critically explores the development of modern music from 1900 to the present day. Entries on each composer give critical consensus, a brief biography and list works in order of composition with illuminating programmatic and analytical notes. David Ewen, 'music's interpreter to the American people' ("Time" magazine) examines in a work of encyclopaedic length and scope the currents and cross-currents of the music of our time.
