Not currently on our shelves, but available to order (usually within a few days)
To understand music, you can't just read about it--you have to hear it.
Not only does this comprehensive guide cover everything about the subject, from what music is and how it's made to instruments, composers, and recordings, it comes with a free downloadable app. Thanks to this AR feature, you can interact with the orchestra and listen to Benjamin Britten's music, performed by the Royal Northern College of Music Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sir Mark Elder. Each spread includes striking photographs and bite-sized chunks of information, and "Did you know?" and "Suggested listening" sidebars appear throughout.
