A dull, lifeless work mired in traditional, outdated musicology. Little of the revolution in musicological thought, including social, cultural, and philsophical approaches has impacted this work. Interdiscplinary aspects of music and other arts largely are ignored.

This book is fine. I should like to point out, however, at the risk of belaboring the bleedingly obvious (as comedian John Cleese might put it), that a book true to its title called "A History of Western Music" is necessarily concerned with the past, and the past tends not to change. The past is pretty much content to stay put. (On the other hand, the number of graduate students in "musicology" keeps increasing, and if these students want eventually to find positions they have to publish papers. Having found positions, if they want to secure tenure, they have to publish more papers. To accommodate them there exist paper receptacles called "journals". The past is pretty much impervious to the contents of these paper receptacles.)

Grout and Palisca are the Microsoft of music history. Over the years the book has been refined again and again to the point where the whole thing does what it does very well, has what an a very large number of people need, and is acceptably easy to use. On top of all that, it's been backed up with extraordinary marketing savvy. The result is that right now it has little serious competition. Which doesn't stop me from wishing there were a history of music that had flair, had a strong individual perspective, had a new way of looking at the world--none of which you'll find here.

"A History of Western Music" is a standard reference text for the academic study of "classical" art music from antiquity to the present (i.e. 1960). As an example of this book's scholarly authority, the 5th edition is commonly the sole information source for many Master's of Music history qualifying exams. Author and Cornell professor emeritus Donald Grout writes with a straightforward style and elucidates his prose with many colorful pictures and musical examples. All those looking for a thorough, single volume survey of Western art music should make this book the first addition to their library.

This book is Donald J. Grout's masterpiece. Scholarly, detailed, and carefully considered, it includes analyses of pieces from every period in the history of western music. Grout interweaves the development of harmony, rhythm, and usage with the evolution of various instruments and vocal trends, and presents all in the context of social and political history.

Contrary to the views of the reviewer from San Francisco, the newly-revised fifth edition is much improved over the third and fourth editions. While I will agree that some book companies promote "newness" as a novlety, I don't agree that such is the case with this book. New discoveries are made about the history of music, especially early music, every year. If books such as this one weren't revised on a regular basis, the text wouldn't necessarily be accurate. Imagine writing a research paper on space travel using a set of enclopedias from 1962; it just won't work. This is by far the best book in its field. For some readers, it may be too concise, as I've heard many complaints that it's dry, boring reading. Well, it's a history textbook, not a Danielle Steele novel, so what would you expect?

In diesem Buch steht alles drin, was man fürs Studium brauch und noch viel mehr.
Es ist wirklich anschaulich geschrieben, zudem sind viele Beispiele aufgeführt.
Das Sprachniveau ist angemessen und nicht zu schwer zu verstehen.

Empfehlenswert, besonders zu diesem Preis!!!!!!

If, as its publisher avers, "the present revision [was] undertaken by Professor Palisca with Dr. Grout's blessings", it is probably only because this author recognizes the need to acquiesce to the publishing industry's manic obsession with newness and novelty. It's very sad that vital books have to be "updated" and "revised" to accommodate the writing careers of persons manifestly unable to create vital books themselves.
Recommended: "Pentatonic Scales for the Jazz-Rock Keyboardist" by Jeff Burns.

This is agreeably the most popular and complete text for any serious student of music history. It is straightforward, concise, and without unnecessary embelishments other authors may find necessary. This straightforward writing style, I must admit, does not make it the most exciting text available. When I was in undergraduate school, I found that Grout's book was often the most effective cure for insomnia.
