This important anthology of scores of "serious" music by women will enlighten students of music history and serve as a source of programming ideas for performers. It provides 51 musical pieces (some complete, some excerpted) with critical/analytical comments and biographies of the 37 composers represented. Many authors of the biographies here have written extensively elsewhere about their subjects or edited their works (e.g., Nancy B. Reich on Clara Schumann and Beatrice Pescerelli on Maddalena Casualana), while contemporary composers Vivian Fine and Ellen Taaffe Zwillich speak for themselves. Further reading and information on recordings is included. Essential to all music history and scores collections. Bonnie Jo Dopp, District of Columbia P.L., Washington,
