KIRKUS REVIEW

This is definitely specialized, as it is a musicians approach to the contribution made by some thirty odd modern composers, modern in the sense of having made an outstanding contribution to this century. Twenty critics and other musicians have written the sketches, which are briefly biographical, but largely appraisal of works. Catalogue of published work of each musician follows the section dealing with him. It is interesting to note the enormous contribution made by the Slavic races; foreign artists predominate, with only two North and one South American and one English.
