This tremendous musical resource is now at your fingertips! A fascinating and historical collection, written by people with a much different and closer perspective to the great composers. For example, the article on Debussy is 1/2 column (he has “perpetuated things likely to offend musicians' prejudices unnecessarily”), Bruckner rates a full column (“an inordinate leaning towards the manner of Wagner”), while Louis Spohr (“famous composer”) gets 7-1/2 pages plus a full-page portrait! Includes a helpful indext to get you to the major articles.
