Adolf Bernhard Marx (1795-1866), the music critic and composer, spent much of his career as professor of music in Berlin and was a friend and mentor of Mendelssohn.

The preface to this two-volume study, published in 1863, ranks Gluck (1714-87) wtih Handel, Mozart and Beethoven at the pinnacle of musical achievement. Marx describes Gluck's radical innovations in operatic composition in the context of the wider European tradition, and sets them in a chronological account of the composer's life. Volume 1 covers Gluck's education, his early successes in Italy and travels in Europe, and his prolific output from 1750 to 1770, including the major, reformist works Orfeo, Alceste, and Paride ed Elena, all premiered in Vienna. Marx illustrates his analyses of plot, libretto and orchestration with numerous music examples, and quotations from Gluck's writings

General musical instruction : an aid to teachers and learners in every branch of musical knowledge by Adolf Bernhard Marx( Book )

17 editions published between 1846 and 2012 in English and German and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adolf Bernhard Marx (1795-1866) was an influential music theorist, critic, composer and pedagogue. He believed that music should be part of everyone's general education and lobbied the Prussian government for a comprehensive national music-education scheme. This English translation by George Macirone of Marx's 1839 Allgemeine Musiklehre was published in 1854 as the first work in the series Novello's Library for the Diffusion of Musical Knowledge. The series, described by the publisher as 'a collection of standard treatises on the art of music written by the most esteemed English and foreign masters', was devised in response to a growing demand for training books and manuals to support domestic music-making. It also included Berlioz's famous treatise on instrumentation (also reissued in this series). Marx's work covers the basic elements of music theory, musical instruments, compositional techniques, forms of music, performance advice, and the importance of musical education in general
