    New Edition

    The Classical Music Encyclopedia is a unique package. Ideal for the beginner and expert alike, this fully-comprehensive, single-volume family reference work is organised chronologically, covering the development of classical music from ancient times to the modern day. The book is divided into eras. All aspects of each era are covered, with entries on composers, performers, musical developments, historical context and instruments, to give a complete guide to the music of that time and how it was evolving and why.

    Graphically-led listening guides take you through the audio CD that accompanies the book, as well as listing the best recordings to the essential compositions. Unique discovery trails also allow you to follow a range of thematic routes through the book.

    The book is designed as a comprehensive introduction to classical music. It can be used as a home-based introduction to the subject, an educational tool, or as a primary academic resource for experts.
