Hugh Benham: Baroque Music In Focus - Second Edition
This book defines Baroque music simply and explains how it began, developed and influenced later musicians, with chapters on major genres and a survey of the lives and music of the two leading composers of the late Baroque, Bach and Handel.
This book suggests listening, viewing and further reading material to complement the main topics within the book, and is an ideal resource for those wanting to explore the many aspects of Baroque music.
This second edition has been fully revised and updated, with expanded sections on the major genres and works of the Baroque era.
