Editorial Reviews

Piano and Keyboard
Harris often provides pithy sentences that encapsulate a good deal of significance in a few words.
CHOICE
This valuable reference compiles in one comprehensive volume basic information from many diverse sources...the first historical work to cross this reviewer's desk in which the current, burgeoning scholarship devoted to the rediscovery of women composers has been incorporated without special comment, the volume is a model for future histories of music.
Oxford University Press
...comprehensive discography. The book reveals legions of totally unknown composers who wrote concertos for either the harpsichord or the piano.
American Reference Books Annual
This is an extremely comprehensive descriptive chronology of composers of piano or harpsichord music...an excellent volume that offers much to the reader.
