Compiled by the leading authority on the subject, this is an invaluable guide to every aspect of western classical music in the twentieth-century. The entries cover the whole range of composers, terms, and musical instruments, as well as festivals and ensembles specializing in music of the period. Lists of works and suggestions for further reading are provided and a chronological list of music since 1901 highlights the complex crosscurrents in twentieth-century composition. 1044 entries.

From Library Journal:

This encyclopedia provides just over 1000 entries on a variety of contemporary music subjects. The coverage of composers focuses on the four continents that one would expect, with emphasis on the United States (131 figures) and Great Britain (92 figures); minorities and women are not particularly well served. There are helpful entries related to ensembles, instruments, and techniques and rather abbreviated treatments of specific compositions. Though the chronology of first performances that concludes the volume is useful, the general bibliography cites only 13 books. The prime value of this publication is that the information is up-to-date. Dominique-Rene de Lerma, Music Dept., Morgan State Univ., Baltimore
