Review Text

A smaller and less expensive volume by the writer of the Oxford Companion To Music presented as a substitute for the larger work or as a supplement for quick reference rather than leisurely examination. While not so fully explanatory as the Companion, this book includes new notes on vocal and instrumental performers and conductors and on numerous individual compositions. Over 10,000 entries, with cross-references. Included are: composers, performers and other personalities past and present; instruments; compositions; terms relating to notation, harmony, form, and performance; musical societies, journals, publishing firms, instrument makers, opera houses, etc..
