Reviews
The Origins of Musicality asks the sorts of questions that fascinate students and the general public, but that more traditional musicologists have, in recent years, rarely ventured answers to: what is music, where does it come from, and why do we do it? The book represents an invaluable and rich picture of the state of the art in fields where research can become outdated far more quickly than in traditional musicology.--Music & Letters--
