Description
Whether your preference is for Antonio Vivaldi or Richard Wagner, Frédéric Chopin or Ennio Morricone, you'll find something to treasure in this compulsively readable guide to 300 classical music masterpieces, all of which were selected by listeners of Britain's independent radio station, Classic FM. Arranged alphabetically by composer, each entry features intriguing background information on a particular composition and a recommended recording of it. If you assume that Glenn Gould is the go-to for J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations and that Jacqueline du Pré "owns" Elgar's Cello Concerto, think again; these selections are refreshingly original and are sure to stir your interest in some performers of recent decades. Lynn Hatzius's innovative collage illustrations appear throughout, and the book concludes with a list of 25 essential recordings.

"There's something here for every fan, from the casual listener to the serious aficionado."—Sir Simon Rattle

"[This book is] full of delightful stories, recommended recordings and hidden treasures."—Bryn Terfel
