Across Europe, more than three hundred houses and museums commemorate the composers that lived and worked in them. In Calling on the Composer, two distinguished musicologists guide the reader and the musically curious traveller to these sites and provide essential information on their content and significance. Whether lakeside hut or moated castle, clock tower or cave, village school or fine town house, the physical context for musical genius and a glimpse of the artefacts of day-to-day existence have a powerful impact on how we perceive the figure behind the music we know and love. Julie and Stanley Sadie have journeyed to thirty-one countries to compile this unique travel companion and reference source. They offer practical information for the visitor, seasoned insights and lively commentary. Richly illustrated and supported by thorough maps, the entries on individual composers trace their steps through the practicalities of life and the context of creativity. A series of preliminary essays explore some of the thought-provoking issues that surround and inform the presentation of these sites.

Over 250 operas are described in this book, most of which have been performed in the major opera houses of the English-speaking world since the 1970s. A handful of additional works have been selected by Stanley Sadie - operas that lend themselves to CD recording or festival revival. The operas are listed in alphabetical order. In addition to a full synopsis of every plot, there is a cast list and a note of the singers in the original production, as well as information about the origins of the work and its literary and social background. Each contribution concludes with a brief comment on its place in operatic history. There is also a listing by composer, a glossary and indexes of the names of operatic characters and the first line of arias. The illustrations shows how opera has been staged from its beginnings to "deconstructed" productions.
