RECORDS: 1950 Edition

Email this review


..a critical survey of the significant literature of serious music that found its way onto records between the end of 1947 and the first quarter of 1950""...this also has, in its introduction, a worthwhile evaluation of the new types of LP records, and an interesting appraisal of not only U. S., but international recording history. The main part of the book is again alphabetically arranged by composers, with discussion of the quality of their recorded works. A valuable reference work, and one that will be useful to any serious record collector, this new edition will have a definite market.
