Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An exhaustive listing of the works of 132 major composers, intended for those who simply collect favorite recordings as well as true connoisseurs; the catalog is oriented toward listeners rather than scholars, and it omits such information as the location of manuscripts and controversies involving titles, dating, etc. While individual composers and their works have been thoroughly treated in other books, this volume differs in that it collects and organizes all essential information about classical compositions. The catalog can be used, for example, to identify a particular aria in the context of a whole opera, to keep track of and label a collection using the catalog's numbering system, to trace lesser-known symphonies or string quartets, to learn what other works by Beethoven share the musical themes of "Eroica," or to find at what age Brahms composed his first symphony. The catalog is clearly a labor of love, and it will be useful to a broad audience of music listeners. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
