EthnomusicologyReview of previous edition:
...opens up the realm of usual discourse concerning classical and contemporary music to include those who are not Euroamerican.
"Although the authors of this condensed biographical dictionary claim to have restricted the entries to 'composers who have written in the classical or cultivated tradition,' a few composers of salon music are also included. Compiles brief biographical information on 377 composers from Argentina, 30 from Bolivia, 171 from Brazil, 77 from Chile, seven from Paraguay, and 42 from Uruguay; also provides short lists of works. Despite the undeniable need for a reference work such as this, the brevity of treatment given to major names makes it of very limited use for specialists"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
