FabulousReviewed in the United States on 5 June 2009
I love, love, love this book!!! I have been a music lover all my life, and I do know my instruments and technical terms. So I didn't have any trouble understanding the text and descriptions. But I have so much enjoyed following along as I listen to each piece again and again. Even I, who understands it, learned so much more from having read the descriptions. I have purchased all of the recordings that he recommends and have put them on my iPod, and I have enjoyed them immensely. Thank you so much for this excellent book.

Average informationReviewed in the United States on 3 November 2003
Did not meet my expectations. I was hoping some technical and artistic explanations in judging the musical piece but all I perceived was a verbal description of the music that you could explain to someone how the symphony was performed. Violins followed by clavier than picolos etc,etc. So at the end I did not know any more than listening the actual piece and confirming the authors arguments that indeed clavier follows violins. Why is it so good, I still do not know.
