  • 2008-02-02 00:00:00.0 Not as great as the others in the series

    The three other books in the series are excelent, but this one is not as good. It begins with the Romantics such as Scriabin, and the Impresionists, such as Satie and Debussy. But after that the collection focouses on abstract 12 tone composers. It gives little atention to the spanish...

    genres or the russians genres, and leaves out american music, such as Gerswhin, Joplin, and Copland, completely. If you want a book on 12 tone music, this is a good book, if you want a ballanced book, tis isn't it.
