"Cet ouvrage est le livre d'une vie. Une vie d'écoute et donc de passion. D'aussi loin que je me souvienne, la musique fut pour moi comme une évidence. Du côté de ma mère, tout le monde avait chanté, joué du piano, été à l'opéra. Du côté de mon père, il y avait eu deux très bons professionnels. Enfin, les Soeurs m'ont fait un don, entre tous inestimable: elles m'ont appris à poser ma voix sur mon oreille. L'enfant solitaire que j'ai été n'a pas eu de mal à apprendre du Chérubin de Mozart et, quand on n'a personne pour qui chanter (ou même à qui parler), eh bien, on chante aux brises. Enseignant je fus, ce qui oblige à mieux savoir ce qu'on sait et mieux aimer ce qu'on aime. Rassure-toi donc, lecteur: de Glyndebourne à Salzbourg, de Bach à Dutilleux, tu trouveras ici tout ce qu'il faut pour te plaire tant le vagabondage de l'auteur est insatiable."--P. [4] of cover.

In the last decade of the 19th century, modernist sensibilities reached a critical mass and emerged more frequently in music as composers began employing dissonance, polyrhythm, atonality, and densities. Conversely, many 20th-century composers eschewed modernist devices and wrote accessible works in a tonal idiom, which drew chiefly on classical, romantic, and folk models. Then the postmodern sensibility followed, with its enthusiasm for the unprecedented availability of virtually every type of music, and it engendered numerous sub-groups, including multiculturalism, minimalism, multimedia, and free improvisation. Historical Dictionary of Modern and Contemporary Classical Music focuses on modernist and postmodern classical music worldwide from 1890 to the present. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, an extensive bibliography, and over 400 cross-referenced dictionary entries, with more than 60 entries explaining the methods, styles, and acoustic and electronic media peculiar to new music, and over 350 entries giving essential information on the lives and work of the people who have composed and performed that music. Those entries also include pop, jazz, and rock composer/musicians whose work either overlaps the realm of classical music or else is so radical within its own field that it merits discussion in this context. This book is a must for anyone, musician or non-musician, student or professional, who seeks to research and learn more about any significant aspect of modern and contemporary classical music worldwide.

Anyone who listens to or plays classical music often wants to put the pieces they encounter in context - to check information ranging from who wrote the piece, or the date of its first performance, to how it acquired its title, or whether it was commissioned for a specific person or occasion. General dictionaries of music only cover a limited number of musical works, and include very little detail. The new Oxford Dictionary of Musical Works provides short articles on over 1750 musical works from earliest times to the present day, providing a comprehensive but handy reference. Entries encompass a broad spectrum of genres - from opera, ballet, choral and vocal music, orchestral, chamber and instrumental pieces, to nicknamed works, collections, national anthems, hymn tunes, and traditional melodies.Each entry outlines the genre to which the piece belongs; the librettist or author of the text, including any literary source; the number of acts or movements; the scoring - including details of the instrumentalists and vocalists needed to perform the piece; how it came to be commissioned; the place and date of its first performance; any subsequent arrangements or revisions; and any additional important or entertaining information.

In this invaluable reference work, Graham Strahle has compiled dictionary definitions of musical terms, in English, as used and understood during the Renaissance and Baroque periods. The dictionary contains terms relating to instruments, performance, theory and composition and draws entirely from English sources in the period 1500-1740. The main sources are lexicographic works, mainly general English dictionaries but also Latin, Italian, French and Spanish dictionaries published in England. These give a representation of continental as well as English musical traditions. There are also definitions found in musical treatises and other musical writings of the time. The purpose is to reveal how terms and definitions were understood by musicians of the time, using their own words. The book thus provides innumerable new insights into music as played and heard in earlier times.
