-Prologue by Sir John Eliot Gardiner

An essential work for understanding the history and evolution of music and musical instruments. Music is one of the most pleasurable human activities, for listener and performer alike. And yet, while ubiquitous, the discipline remains something of a mystery to most. In this Dictionary, Ramón Andrés approaches music and the instruments that make it possible from a historical angle. Well-researched and highly precise, this new edition is a gift for any devotee. Musician, essayist and poet, Ramón Andrés is one of the leading authorities in Spain on musical instruments and the history of music.
