About the Author

Floyd and Margaret Grave have worked both independently and together on a variety of research projects, centering mostly on problems of eighteenth-century music sources, theory, criticism, and analysis. Floyd Grave currently teaches in the Music Department at Rutgers University, where he has served as director of the graduate programs in musicology, music theory, and composition. He has also taught at New York University and the University of Virginia. Both Floyd and Margaret have received numerous research grants and contributed articles to the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians , first and second editions.


The book is intelligently organized, mindful of unfair value judgments against earlier works and simply packed full of information. * Karen Hiles, Cambridge journal Eighteenth-Century Music *
Both of them eminent scholars, Floyd and Margaret Grave bring to this undertaking not only a comprehensive knowledge of the existing literature but also an admirable ability to present their material coherently and to supplement it with their own analytical insights * Early Music *
