The author has approached his new eight 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.
