Isacoff, Stuart M.


"Isacoff's book makes admirable sense of a topic that is normally broached only in turgid texts of music theory. He writes engagingly about abstract and often counterintuitive matters, and he lends his subject a bit of drama by placing it, rightly, in the context of the history of ideas. The revolution of equal temperament took place primarily in the musical arena, but Isacoff shows that the concepts that brought it about were inseparable from contemporaneous ideas about astronomy or man's place in the universe or God.Isacoff, Stuart M. is the author of 'Temperament The Idea That Solved Music's Greatest Riddle', published 2001 under ISBN 9780375403552 and ISBN 0375403558.
