About the book:

The first edition of this reference guide appeared in 1996 in response to a request by readers of BBC Music Magazine for a digest of its CD reviews. In addition to the top 1000 reviews, the second (revised and updated) edition opens with four "essays" by principal contributors, Eric Levi, David Nice, Kate Bolton and Jeremy Siepmann. Covering subjects as diverse as "How Recordings Have Changed Our Perception of 20th-century Musical History", "The Composer as Pianist", "Recording and Listening to Early Music in the late 20th Century" and "Which Master's Voice? ", their inclusion adds interest and depth to this essential handbook. The list itself is, once again, neatly categorised into Chamber, Choral and Song, Instrumental, Opera and Orchestral. Listings are easily accessible showing composer, title, performers, record label and number, recording process, time, price and, of course, the review. Reviewers are leading lights in the world of classical music--critics, broadcasters, authors, musicians, lecturers and professors--some do all of these and more! Needless to say, the reviews are authoritative, informative and--a great bonus in a reference guide--a delight to read. At 10.99, classical music lovers, from the uninitiated to the connoisseur, will save untold time, effort and money by investing in a copy of this excellent handbook without delay. --Carey Green
