About this product
- DescriptionMusical understanding has evolved dramatically, principally through an appreciation of musical meaning in its social, cultural, and philosophical dimensions. This book examines the open and active circle between the values and valuations placed on music by individuals and societies, and the discovery, through music, of what and how to value.
