The Enjoyment of Music book. Joseph Machlis's classic, original Music Appreciation text has been updated and "enhanced" with bits of current academic obsessions such as environmentalism, stirred in like big lumpy raisins. Also added in are lots and lots of snazzy photographs and illustrations, which break up all those intellectually taxing blocks of text. It's a pretty book, but most of my students seem to welcome further explication of the music theory elements than that I've been teaching from this textbook since 2009.

Accompanying disc (for Macintosh and Windows) is titled The young person's guide to the orchestra : enhanced CD for The enjoyment of music, Benjamin Britten. Contains interactive study modules: Materials of music, Instruments of the orchestra, Multimedia listening guide.

The Enjoyment Of Music By Joseph Machlis 1957.

Joseph Machlis, an author and opera translator whose 1955 textbook ''The Enjoyment of Music'' is one of the most popular music appreciation books published in English, died on Saturday at his home in Manhattan. He was 92. Mr. Machlis was a familiar figure in the classical music world, although to see him - a small, frail-looking man with thick glasses and a shock of unruly white hair - one would not have guessed that he was a powerhouse into his 90's. Around his 85th birthday, he told a reporter that he still exercised regularly and swam 50 laps a day.

The Enjoyment of Music. A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. No obvious damage to the book cover, with the dust jacket (if applicable) included for hard covers. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. Some identifying marks on the inside cover, but this is minimal.

This instructor's manual has been designed to accompany the 6th edition of a music appreciation textbook, which emphasizes a genre approach rather than a composer-masterpiece approach. It introduces material on women composers, such as Clara Schumann, and the music of Africa and Asia.

While the book is handy, you need the electronic access to complete the college class. You will find that after renting the book and having to purchase the online access key, it would have been cheaper to buy a new book outright.

You MUST buy this book NEW for any COLLEGE CLASS. New books come with the access code required to listen to music for the class. The USED books code is no longer valid. Each book has it's own code.

With that said, the book is excellent.

I bought the "shorter edition" for a class because I was trying to save money with a paperback. This is NOT the same book at the hardcover! I regretted my purchase by the end of the first class -- the paperback shorter edition is missing so much interesting material from the full-length edition, that you just don't get a good picture of the material being covered. It is like reading only crib notes -- the "flesh" that would give meaning to the whole is missing. So I am selling it back to Amazon (thereby losing a bunch of money because I bought it new) and buying a used hardcover. I'll use my secret code to access the online files for the shorter edition, and for other selections, well, there's Spotify.

Rather than coming with CDs, this book comes with a website and a code to log on to hear the selections. Of course, if you buy a used book, you don't get this, although you can buy it separately.

Outside of the shorter edition being a waste of money (for me), I think the book is wonderfully well organized with great illustrations. I'm looking forward to the hardback version.

'The Enjoyment of Music' was actually enjoyable to read, for being a textbook! It discusses music from the Middle Ages to the present. For each song that the chapter covers, it contains a listening guide. The listening guides include some tips on what to listen for, what instruments are playing, the English translations for lyrics in foreign languages, and some other stuff for the music lover. It also has biographical notes on composers and historical notes on the time periods. The only thing I wish this book covered a little more thoroughly was the definitions of their words.

This was purchased for a college music appreciation course. It contains not just information about composers through the ages but also the genre of their music, how the music developed, the cultural influences that affected their music and how to recognize the different types of music. This is best used with the companion The Norton Recordings: 8 CDs to accompany the Norton Scores & The Enjoyment of Music. This will continue to be my source for music information in the future.

This is an updated version of a music textbook that has been a standard for decades. I do use this volume in my Music History classes at the University. I find it to be excellent for the beginning music student, and I encourage Music professors to consider this text for their courses.

I bought this to use for my intro to music class at a price I almost couldn't believe, and it came in great condition. It's also really good as a textbook too. Whether you're looking to major in music, or you're just interested in this class for a few extra credits, the text is very easy to understand and it reads in a way that's not overly academic or boring. However, definitely buy from here instead of wasting your hard-earned money at the campus bookstore.
