In der ersten deutschen Übersetzung seit 140 Jahren liegt hier einer der berühmtesten Texte der Musikgeschichte erstmals in einer zuverlässigen und für die Praxis konzipierten zweisprachigen Ausgabe vor.
Die Musica Enchiriadis, entstanden in der zweiten Hälfte des 9. Jahrhunderts, tradiert die Theorie des europäischen Tonsystems, entwickelt eine der frühesten Tonschriften, schafft und erweitert die begrifflichen Grundlagen zur Beschreibung von Musik und entwickelt die früheste Form der abendländischen Mehrstimmigkeit. Daher ist es nicht zu viel gesagt, wenn man die Musica Enchiriadis als Grundlage sowohl der Musiktheorie als auch der Komposition in Europa bezeichnet.
