Organized to follow the development of the Baroque harpsichord concerto, the volume is divided into four parts: the Baroque era (J.S. Bach to Mozart), the Classical era (Mozart to Beethoven), the Romantic era (post-Beethoven to Brahms), and the 20th century (post-Brahms to the present). Each part begins with an examination of the works composed in Germany, followed by Italy, then European countries east of the north-south line through Germany and Italy, and finally countries west of that line. Includes a discography, bibliography, 46 tables of additional composers listed by country, and a composer index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

John M. Harris (B.S., San Jose State University; B.S., M.S., Juilliard School of Music; D.M.A., University of Texas-Austin) joined the faculty at Texas A&M University-Commerce in 1964.Review:
Harris often provides pithy sentences that encapsulate a good deal of significance in a few words. (Piano & Keyboard)
This valuable reference compiles in one comprehensive volume basic information from many diverse sources...the first historical work to cross this reviewer's desk in which the current, burgeoning scholarship devoted to the rediscovery of women composers has been incorporated without special comment, the volume is a model for future histories of music. (Choice)
...comprehensive discography. The book reveals legions of totally unknown composers who wrote concertos for either the harpsichord or the piano. (Oxford University Press)
This is an extremely comprehensive descriptive chronology of composers of piano or harpsichord music...an excellent volume that offers much to the reader. (Arba)
