Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Relaxed and accessible in style, this authoritative guide is the first symphony handbook for non-musicians. The book begins with a general introduction to the symphony and short pieces on the orchestra and musical styles. Mordden goes on to describe, chronologically, over 700 pieces--from Vivaldi to twentieth-century composers. Further aids to the reader include two lists of repertory builders and a glossary of musical terms.

"Easy and pleasurable to read...a genuinely useful guide for the music lover who has not had a musical education but loves concert music."--John Barkham Reviews

Synopsis:

Relaxed and accessible in style, this is the first symphony handbook written especially for the beginning listener. More comprehensive than any other symphony guide--yet more compact--it describes for the radio buff, record collector, and sometime concertgoer over seven hundred orchestral pieces, including symphonies, concertos, suites, tone poems, ballets, and overtures.
