Pressestimmen

"Ian Bent's foreward describes this intellectual biography as the first to survey the totality of Rameau's work, incorporating recently discovered materials, along with glimpses of his contemporaries, proponents and antagonists alike. The broad scope of the book's approach, balanced by an appropriate level of technical and theoretical detail, will be welcomed by theorists and scholars of music, 18th-century science, the Enlightenment, and the history of ideas."
