How to Listen to Modern Music without Earplugs


Our Description

This is an amusing and sardonic look at the world of 'modern serious music'. It is unabashed in its lampooning of so-called serious music of the 20th century. This hugely entertaining volume tackles one of the last taboos left in music - 'modern serious music' of the 20th century.

The story goes that the legendary conductor Sir Thomas Beecham was asked if he had conducted any music by Stockhausen. The reply came, No, but I once trod in some. Like all genuinely serious subjects, modern music is ripe for humour and nobody is more amusing about music than musicians - witness this book!
