The Da Capo Catalog of Classical Music CompositionsBook - 1996
The Da Capo Catalog of Classical Music Compositions exhaustively lists the works of 132 major composers, from Vivaldi and Bach to Webern and Cage. A classical music lover's dream, it is the only source containing all the essential information about classical compositions within the convenient covers of one volume. Designed for listeners, readers, collectors, and connoisseurs alike, this catalog will be as indispensable an investment as a philatelic catalog is to the postage stamp collector. This catalog will tell you at a glance: which workswould complete your collection of Dvorak's string quartets; which Gershwin songs appeared in which of his shows; in which Mozart opera the aria Il mio tesoro" appears; at what age Brahms composed his first symphony; whether Beethoven's Piano Sonata No.14 is the "Moonlight" or the "Waldstein"; and how many symphonies Borodin composed. The Da Capo Catalog of Classical Music Compositions relies on the most authoritative sources. Easy to use and difficult to put down, it will delight anyone frustrated by the inadequacy and inconsistency of existing reference works. The first book of its kind, it will undoubtedly become a well-appreciated companion on your journeys through musical history."
