Origins of the Popular Style

The Antecedents of Twentieth-Century Popular Music

Peter van der Merwe

Analyzing popular music from a musical, rather than a sociological or political viewpoint, this book examines the nineteenth-century split between classical and popular music and surveys all styles of Western popular music to uncover the musical language uniting them.
