    Subjective, of course, but not as infuriating as is usually the case (still, not even a mention of the Heifetz Brahms VC?, or any of Bach's Lute/Lute-Harpsichord works?), in fact to my tastes the best overall collection of recommendations I've seen. The book I'd recommend to someone st...

    A good summer browse book...basically to see which of the supposedly great recordings I may own or may have heard, and maybe to be turned on to ones I haven't. As the spectre of death looms ever nearer, I'm often reminded how important it is to make the most of fleeting time. I have n...

    This is a must have if you are building a collection of classical music or already have a collection you need a reference for. It lists the work in chronological order, describes the music, links the composer with contemporaries, organizes by kind of music (orchestral, vocal, opera, ba...

    I'm a bit of an anthology fan, it has to be said. I'm lazy so anytime the leg work is taken out of something, I'm going to have a grand time and this book is no different. Beautifully put together with classical pieces ranging across several centuries, it's a great introduction to clas...
