Summary and Info
Because I spent my childhood in Leipzig, a city which resounds with echoes of Bach and the entire musical world, I have always had the idea of one day preparing a pictorial history of music. This present book is the result; it combines elements of my professional life as a graphic historian and my private life as a happy lover of music.A pictorial history of music can never be merely a picture album, however, for no amount of illustrative material can by itself create a meaningful panorama of music. There must be, in addition to pictures, an intrinsic plan, a unified point of view which the reader can grasp and use to achieve comprehension
