KLIATT
These two "visual guides" in DK's beautifully illustrated new Eyewitness Companions series focus on individuals and instruments as well as music history and styles. Classical Music, edited by a British concert promoter and organizer, begins by introducing the elements of classical music and discusses instruments and classical music in performance. It then goes on to describe eras in music history from the early music of 1000-1600 A.D. to the present, with profiles of the lives and work of major composers. Guitar, by a consultant and teacher of guitar history and music, introduces great guitarists ranging from Django Reinhardt to Jimi Hendrix, depicts and describes classic guitars in loving detail, and provides a lengthy guide to playing the guitar, along with a chord directory and information on care and maintenance. A directory lists resources for guitarists in the US and Canada. Both reference books conclude with a glossary of musical terms, and both attractive volumes, with their many full-color photos, will be welcomed in both public and school libraries. (Eyewitness Companions series). KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2005, DK, 240p. illus. indexes., Ages 12 to adult.
