""This text provides an approach to perceptive listening and an introduction to musical elements, forms, and stylistic periods. Its discussions of composers' lives, individual styles, and representative works aim not merely to impart facts but to stimulate curiosity and enthusiasm. The book was written to heighten the readers' love of music as well as to develop their listening skills."" - from the Preface to the "Seventh Edition"

Through six editions, Roger Kamien's "Music: An Appreciation" has become the most widely used text for Music Appreciation and Introduction to Music Literature courses. The author has approached his new seventh edition with the goal of re-examining the scholarship and refreshing the repertoire while maintaining the strengths that have made the book number one - the clear presentation of musical elements, the vivid depiction of music history, the carefully chosen musical examples, the detailed and informative Listening Outlines, and the unsurpassed supplements package.
