"Not only worhtwhile but so beautifully written and so informative that it should be in every chamber music lover's library." -- Los Angeles Times. Authoritative, beautifully written guide presents 231 of the most frequently performed pieces of chamber music by 55 composers. For each, the author gives a brief biography, followed by discussions of the individual compositions -- both their historical and musical contexts and their salient features, including formal organization, content, and any extramusical associations. "No lover of chamber music should be without this Guide." -- John Barkham Reviews. Preface. Glossary.
