The Eighth Edition of A History of Western Music is a vivid, accessible, and richly contextual view of music in Western culture.

Building on his monumental revision of the Seventh Edition, Peter Burkholder has refined an inspired narrative for a new generation of students, placing people at the center of the story. The narrative of A History of Western Music naturally focuses on the musical works, styles, genres, and ideas that have proven most influential, enduring, and significant-but it also encompasses a wide range of music, from religious to secular, from serious to humorous, from art music to popular music, and from Europe to the Americas. With a six-part structure emphasizing the music's reception and continued influence, Burkholder's narrative establishes a social and historical context for each repertoire to reveal its legacy and its significance today.

In a course where detail can seem overwhelming, Burkholder’s clear pedagogical structure separates the forest from the trees, calling attention to:

What’s Important—Definitive, self-contained chapters are bookended by introductions and summaries and navigated by side heads and key terms that highlight the critical information in each section. Chapters address a focused range of topics, enhancing student comprehension and teaching flexibility.
Where It Fits—Newly designed timelines, maps, diagrams, and illustrations put essential information in context. New Forms-at-a-Glance boxes describe and diagram important musical forms in a straightforward, visual format for maximum clarity.
Why It Matters and Who Cares—The narrative unites three themes: people making choices, what people valued, and the tension between tradition and innovation. Each part, chapter, and section tells a story that is in some ways complete in itself but also connects to the others, forming a single narrative thread rooted in human choices and values.
