Contributors explore new aspects of composition and performance in this comprehensive examination of the repertory, institutions, performers, composers, and social and cultural world of one of the greatest moments in music history. They consider the cosmopolitan nature of music making; emergence of markets for musical activity; and development of new musical styles and gestures. The work also contains a separate chronology and dictionary-style entries on individuals, places and institutions.
