Aristoxenus

$ 2.99

A fourth century BC Greek Peripatetic philosopher, Aristoxenus was the pupil of Aristotle and is now regarded as the first authority of musical theory in the classical world. Although he wrote almost 500 works, only Aristoxenus’ landmark treatise on music, ‘Elements of Harmony’, survives in a significant state. It is of invaluable worth, providing the chief source of knowledge on ancient Greek music. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Aristoxenus’ complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
