Excerpt from The Story of Music: An Historical Sketch of the Changes in Musical Form

I freely confess that I have chosen the second course, not from any lack of modesty, but because I believe that the presentation of history is a matter less of knowledge than of point of view. For this reason the invitation of the Radio Corporation attracted me particularly, as it gave me the opportunity of testing the soundness of the ideas developed in my book on Wagner and my pamphlet on The Nature of Tone in the larger field of music history as a whole. These lectures, which were given under the title of The History of Change in Music, are here presented in book form. While the title has been changed, the lec ture form has been retained because it gives the original layout of the material.
