dtv-Atlas Music, Volume
2 — German Langauge
(Ulrich Michels)


Baroque – Classical – 19th century (romantic) – 20th century (vocal and instrumental music from various countries and composers)

The two-volume ›dtv-Atlas Music‹ outlines the basic principles and history of music and the associated science of musicology. The atlas is divided into theoretical and historical sections, the focus being on the history of music.

In accordance with the dtv-atlas format, the detailed pages of text are juxtaposed with colour charts, graphics, diagrams and examples of musical notation which serve to illustrate and clarify the context. An extensive index of the abbreviations, symbols and Italian terms, as well as a detailed subject index help to make the atlas an authoritative and accessible work of reference.

Ulrich Michels

Prof. Dr. Ulrich Michels, was born in 1938, and studied music, musicology and German. He obtained a doctorate from the University of Freiburg and has been lecturing at the State Academy of Music at the University of Karlsruhe from 1972 to 2008. He died in 2015.
