The "Masterpieces Series" offers an ideal package, which gives the reader a compact, comprehensible, and entertaining overview of the painting and the music of each century. This brand new concept is unique: each book presents and comments on the most important paintings of the respective century in chronological order. The Music: The four CDs offer the most important musical works of the accordant eras. An extensive preface presents and explains each century and its characteristics and provides explanations of the specific connections between the history of music and painting.
