The New Penguin Dictionary of Music Paperback / softback

Description

The New Penguin Dictionary of Music is the essential A-Z of some 1,000 years of Western music.

It explores in detail the lives and achievements of a huge range of composers, and examines such key topics as music history (from medieval plainchant to contemporary minimalism), performers, theory and jargon.

Written by an award-winning music critic, and blending scholarship with personal insight and opinion, this dictionary is both a pleasurable read and an invaluable and authoritative reference book for all lovers of music, whether amateur or professional.
