BL A clear and stimulating guide to the origins of modern music In the decades from 1900 to 1920, traditonal tonality gave way to new forms of musical expression and was reinterpreted. In tracing the atonal revolution, Jim Samson reveals the various paths taken by Schoenberg and his followers, describing their very different stylistic development. This book is intended for students of music at university level, general readers interested in the origins of twentieth-century music.
