Illustrated with line drawings, tables and musical notations. From the author’s preface: “This book is literally ‘Evenings with Music’. It attempts to furnish, by means of a progressive presentation of musical material, a basic foundation in musical listening, utilizing a method of subdividing study into evenings of varied instruction, and (with the kind co-operation of Messrs. Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, et al.) of musical entertainment. The method has been used successfully by the author in lecture courses and she hopes that in the hands of the conscientious reader it will be equally effective.”
