About the Book

Relaxed and accessible in style, this authoritative guide is the first symphony handbook for non-musicians. The book begins with a general introduction to the symphony and short pieces on the orchestra and musical styles. Mordden goes on to describe, chronologically, over 700 pieces--from Vivaldi to twentieth-century composers. Further aids to the reader include two lists of repertory builders and a glossary of musical terms.
Easy and pleasurable to read...a genuinely useful guide for the music lover who has not had a musical education but loves concert music.--John Barkham Reviews
