Anthology for Music in the Eighteenth Century, part of the Western Music in Context series, is the ideal companion to Music in the Eighteenth Century. Twenty-nine carefully chosen works-including a piano sonata by Anna Bon, liturgical music by Ignacio de Jerusalem, and movements from Haydn symphonies-offer representative examples of genres and composers of the period. Commentaries following each score present a careful analysis of the music, and online links to purchase and download recordings make listening easier than ever.
