    Incorrect information

    I was very excited to obtain Mr. Berger's Guide to Chamber Music, being an avid chamber musician myself. HOWEVER, upon reading some of the descriptions, I found inaccurate information. For example, his analysis of the Jacques Ibert 'Trios Pieces Breves' on page 236 states the 2nd movement is for clarinet and bassoon, when it is really for clarinet and flute. I wonder what else Mr. Berger was misinformed about when writing this 3rd, 'Corrected' edition...
