Two indexes make finding information easy. This is a must-have book for fans of Italian opera and students studying the works of this important composer.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Though Domizetti (1791-1848) is one of those figures within the operatic tradition whose work is generally discussed in terms of what came before and what came after, Cassaro (music library, U. of Pittsburgh) says he was not merely transitional but innovative. His annotated bibliography reflects the main focus of the literature on his operatic work, but one chapter cites scholarly work on his instrumental, vocal chamber, and sacred music. His selection is designed to be useful to beginning researchers as well as more experienced scholars. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
