Anthology for Music in the Nineteenth Century, part of the Western Music in Context series, is the ideal companion to Music in the Nineteenth Century. Twenty-three carefully chosen works-including movements from a Beethoven quartet, excerpts from operas by Verdi and Bizet, piano music by Gottschalk, and a symphonic movement by Tchaikovsky-offer representative examples of genres and composers of the period. Commentaries following each score present a careful analysis of the music, and online links to purchase and download recordings make listening easier than ever.
