Blanning A distinguished historian chronicles the rise of music and musicians in the West from lowly balladeers to masters employed by fickle patrons to the great composers of genius to today's rock stars How he asks did music progress from subordinate status to its present position of supremacy among the creative arts Mozart was literally booted out of the service of the Archbishop of Salzburg with a kick to my arse as he expressed it Yet less than a hundred years later Europe's most powe I picked this one up just passing through the bookstore with little expectations Actually I expected I would simply skim through it Instead I faithfully turned the pages with much enjoyment and found myself thinking about it uite oftenThe subject is given depth humor and is presented in a well structured and consumable manor The author s narration is not bland and he inserts many great uotes factoids and anecdotes from the agesThe Technology chapter is probably my favorite but reuires the prior chapters for its amazing impactKudos to Tim Blanning
