Written by Michael Kennedy, a renowned authority on classical music and chief music critic for The Sunday Telegraph, from 1989 to 2005, the dictionary includes over 14,000 entries on musical terms from allegro to zingaro, and on musical works from Aida to Tosca, as well as musical instruments and their history, composers, librettists, musicians, singers, and orchestras. It also boasts comprehensive works lists for major composers.

Fully revised and updated, the 5th edition of this established reference work contains over 200 new entries, including information on approximately 150 new performers.

Essential reference for music students and teachers, and fascinating reading for all other music enthusiasts.
