Sample text

It was discovered in the late 19th century, and for the very first time, human beings could begin to understand the point at which their forebears had first started to communicate music visually. It evidently took quite some time, though, before this primitive form of notation morphed into the traditional ‘five lines with notes’ approach with which we’re so comfortable nowadays. And while we don’t know who to credit for the Seikilos Epitaph, there’s no doubt who was responsible for the style of music notation used across most of the world today.

In Britain, the Renaissance composers who benefited most from this new technology were Thomas Tallis and his pupil William Byrd. The monarch at the time, Elizabeth I, granted them a licence to print and publish their own music, which had two immediate outcomes: their compositions became far more widely known, and their income rocketed. The publishing of music was (and still can be) a fairly lucrative affair, and the ability these two composers had to disseminate their work had a sizeable impact on their fortunes.

If the truth be told, the idea of identifying 50 moments that have rocked the classical music world is a wholly subjective exercise. If you were sitting an exam and were asked to ‘List the top 50 biggest changes in the development of classical music’, there would be no definitive right and wrong answers, rather a set of differing points of view. This is the sort of book that critics love to review in the Sunday papers, because they can take issue with the central proposition and then give example after example of things that the author should have written.
