Master Musicians Series RSS

"The Master Musicians are the classics of the repertoire." --Nicolas Kenyon, The Sunday Times. Celebrating its 100th anniversary, this extraordinary series continues to amaze and captivate its readers with detailed insight into the lives and work of music's geniuses. Unlike other composer biographies that focus narrowly on the music, this series explores the personal history of each composer and the social context surrounding the music. In a precise, engaging, and authoritative manner, each volume combines a vivid portrait of the musicians' inspirations, influences, life experiences, even their weaknesses, with an accessible discussion of their work. Further, each volume offers superb reference material, including a detailed life and times chronology, a complete list of works, a personalia glossary highlighting the important people in the composer's life, and a select bibliography. Under the supervision of music expert and series general editor Stanley Sadie, Master Musicians will delight music scholars, serious musicians, and all music lovers.
