John Rice’s Music in the Eighteenth Century is part of W. W. Norton’s effort to update their period-specific textbook offerings, a welcome event given that the volume from their previous series, Philip G. Downs’s Classical Music: The Era of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven,is now more than twenty years old. Much has changed in those intervening decades, especially insofar as a textbook on the Classical era is concerned.
