Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Based on the 1960s Stereo Record Guide, this annually published encyclopedic reference remains the most authoritative subject guide but lacks a vital, increasingly important segment: MP3s. Also acknowledged but not covered are discontinued recordings. Instead, returning editor March and others review over 9000 chamber, opera, vocal, and other classical arrangements captured on CDs, DVDs, and Super Audio CDs. Entries are concise, delightful verbal explanations of the listening experience, with allusions to historical reception and previous treatments. An essential addition to all music-related collections.
