What Makes Music European : Looking Beyond Sound, Hardback Book

What Makes Music European : Looking Beyond Sound Hardback

Part of the Europea: Ethnomusicologies & Modernities series

Description

In What Makes Music European, Marcello Sorce Keller addresses the little-discussed matters that are essential to an understanding of how music intersects with the life of so many people.

Readers are offered an approach for thinking about music that depends as much on its history as on the concepts and attitudes of the social sciences.

What Makes Music European concisely demonstrates, to those familiar with Western music, how peculiar Euro-Western concepts of music appear from a cross-cultural perspective.

At the same time, it encourages ethnomusicologists to apply their knowledge to Western music and explain to its public how much of what listeners take for granted is, at the very least, highly debatable.
