    Development

    This book is very thorough on the Composers covered but the comparisons on who might have been the most important for the advancement or development of Classical Music might be more of an opinion of who is making the comparison than of actual fact, if it really matters if there is a difference in value on which contribution each Composer made or how they caused an influence. But that can be overlooked as long as one keeps focused on the value of information rather than on over zealousness leaning toward near hysteria. Also, though profound, not complete.
