Riassunto: This invaluable musical compendium contains biographies of over 100 composers, including many before the age of J.S. Bach, and an analysis of over a thousand of their compositions in all branches of music. To provide historical perspective, the composers are in chronological order, beginning with Guillaume de Machaut and ending with Richard Strauss. A critical evaluation and biography of each composer is followed by a list of his major works, presented in order of composition, with programme and analytical notes allowing the reader to trace the growth and evolution of each composer from apprenticeship to full maturity. Notes on early and lesser-known works are also included. Unusual and interesting features are the discussion of less familiar composers and the inclusion of detailed ballet and opera plots. "The Complete Book of Classical Music" is one of the most comprehensive single-volume reference works ever published and is now available in paperback for the first time.
L'autore: David Ewen, whom Time magazine once described as 'music's interpreter to the American people', was among the most widely read writers on music in the world. He wrote about fifty books on every facet of music, serious and popular. Among Mr Ewen's works are: The World of Great Composers, The World of 20th Century Music, The Home Book of Musical Knowledge and Panorama of American Popular Music. His biographies includes those of Schubert, Johann Strauss, Haydn, Toscanini, and George Gershwin.
