Music has changed more in the hundred years since 1900 than in any previous century. The gulf between 1800 (Beethoven's First Symphony) and 1900 (Elgar's Dream of Gerontius) is easier to bridge than between 1900 and 1913 (Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring). Based on a series of BBC Radio 3 documentaries 'Sounding the Century', this book charts social and economic change, technological developments, political upheavals and new attitudes to non-Western and popular music among the factors that have influenced music as profoundly as any of this century's great composers.
