Summary:
Karol Berger uses the works of Monteverdi, Bach, Mozart and Beethoven to support two claims: first that it was only in the later 18th century that music began to take the flow of time from the past to the future seriously; and second that this change in structure was an aspect of a larger transformation towards modernity.
