Description

Review: "A Conductor's Guide to Nineteenth-Century Choral-Orchestral Works, the fifth in Jonathan D. Green's series of books, addresses works of the Romantic era from composers such as Beach, Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Faure, Mendelssohn, Puccini, Saint-Saens, Schubert, Scriabin, and Verdi. Amassed is a varied collection of significant choral-orchestral works arranged by composer." "Each section begins with a brief biographical sketch, including a selected bibliography, then lists the composer's works. Green presents important details of each work: approximate duration, text sources, the voices and instruments required for the performance, editions currently available, and locations of manuscript materials. Green also provides notes and comments on performance issues, as well as solo roles and the level of difficulty of each piece. The sections conclude with a selective discography and bibliography. The information is vital for aiding scholars with research, and helping conductors in choosing repertoire appropriate to their needs and the abilities of their ensembles."--Jacket.
