Main character of the story was a composer who worked off his houseboat. Aliens land and make first contact while he is busy, surprising him, and he seriously wounds one while defending himself.

Most of the alien races in this book are psychologically unable to contemplate or engage in violent acts without becoming physically ill, but all of the alien races as a whole are at war with a race that enslaves others.

The only other tidbit I remember is a mention that Earth is fairly unique among habitable planets by having multiple continents separated by water instead of having one huge Pangaea continent.

Maybe it's AD Foster A Call to Arms (Damned 1) - not sure of all details since I read it a long time ago, but sounds "right"
