Overview

Radie Britain: A Bio-Bibliography is a concise biography which summarizes the major events in the prolific American composer's life, and describes the conditions under which her singular talent emerged. An in-depth interview with Britain herself gives the opportunity to hear her own personal thoughts on her life, music, and creative philosophy. Walter and Nancy Bailey give an exhaustive list of works and performances, each accompanied by significant information on the work or documented performance. Also included are Britain's compositions for orchestra and band; chamber ensemble; solo piano; piano duets; the harp; chorus and solo voice as well as her stage works. Authorized by Miss Britain and compiled with her help, this is a comprehensive guide to the work of a gifted musician.

A bibliography of Britain's writings concludes the text along with reviews of her performances and other press materials. With its chronological arrangement, this bibliography traces Britain's musical evolution much like a second biography. An index to the entire volume is provided. Both chronological and alphabetical lists of works can be found in the appendixes.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Make no mistake--the genuinely biographical material, including an eight-page interview, covers all of 21 pages. Nothing wrong with that--more important is the descriptive list of works and performances. Finally, a bibliography of Britain's writings, along with reviews of her performances and other press materials. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
