Abstract:

"Music has changed more in the hundred years since 1900 than in any previous century. In less than a quarter of a century music had been radically transformed and it has continued to evolve at an accelerating pace ever since." "How, then, can the general reader understand what has happened? Based on a series of documentary programmes broadcast as part of BBC Radio 3's series Sounding the Century, this book takes a new approach to the story of music in the twentieth century, concentrating on those forces that have formed it. Social and economic change, technological developments, political upheavals, and new attitudes to non-Western and popular music are among the factors that have influenced music as profoundly as any of the century's great composers. Settling the Score is based on the words of those who created the century's music, drawn from interviews carried out especially for the Radio 3 series and from the unrivalled richness of the BBC's sound archives."--Jacket.
