"This is a very fine collection of articles most of which are on individual composers, blending biographical material with analyses of the composer's style(s) and descriptions of the composer's most important works....The articles are informative and lively, written for the non-specialist reader but without condescension....This reference set is a reliable and eminently readable introduction to most of the major figures in the modern western musical tradition." (The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism). 1294pp. A fresh, like-new set. View More...
