Item description for Music of the Twentieth Century by Ton de Leeuw...

Ton de Leeuw was a truly groundbreaking composer. As evidenced by his pioneering study of compositional methods that melded Eastern traditional music with Western musical theory, he had a profound understanding of the complex and often divisive history of twentieth-century music. Now his renowned chronicle Music of the Twentieth Century is offered here in a newly revised English-language edition.
Music of the Twentieth Century goes beyond a historical survey with its lucid and impassioned discussion of the elements, structures, compositional principles, and terminologies of twentieth-century music. De Leeuw draws on his experience as a composer, teacher, and music scholar of non-European music traditions, including Indian, Indonesian, and Japanese music, to examine how musical innovations that developed during the twentieth century transformed musical theory, composition, and scholarly thought around the globe.

Reviews - What do customers think about Music of the Twentieth Century?

Great comprehensive overview of 20th century music  May 13, 2007
If you have more than a base understanding of modern(20th century) music and what led up to it, this is a thorough and accessible work. I highly recommend it for anyone who is a theorist, composer, or music enthusiast. If you are not well-versed in music, this may be a bit much.
