  • Preve
Actually this is the 2nd time I'm buying this dictionary. The first copy was a soft cover ; after its deterioration I was looking for a durable book with the identical text which I found in the 1987 edition.
This dictionary is god sent for newcomers to music who have vague or no previous theoretical knowledge. This book may satisfy the more advanced too, but not the experts unless one needs some material refreshing. Terms of musical theory are simplified, clearly and fluently described, no hitting over ones' head with cryptic terminology. Many themes contain cross references which enables to see the larger and fuller context. This dictionary also contains modern and archaic musical instruments describing their construction, tone's colors characteristics and techniques of tone production. Most of the musical instruments are accompanied by a design of the instrument and a helpful guide of musical compositions in which the instrument plays a major part enabling to get quickly acquainted with its distinctive sounds. Themes of musical periods and styles are short but enlightening. There is also a brief biography of main composers (some dates are dated) including a too short description of their main compositions, and invaluable tables as main symphonies listing, principle Romantic and Renaissance composers and so forth. This dictionary is rather an encyclopedia of music.
The dictionary has a drawback it would be helpful if landmark musical masterpieces compositions were listed as an independent theme with a short analysis.
