I have recommended it to everyone I know!" -- Joan Tower "Important and timely... Valuable to anyone from the high school student to the most accomplished academic." -- Rene Cox Lorraine, MLA Notes "[Citron] succeeds admirably in laying out the fundamental problems and the solutions thus far available... [Her] book is well written and continuously provocative." -- Lydia Goehr, Music and Lettersshow more
