“This book began as an attempt to carry out a suggestion made in 1929 by Carl Engel in his Views and Reviews – to fulfil his wish for ‘a living record of musical personalities, events, conditions, tastes… a history of music faithfully and entirely carved from contemporary accounts.’  It owes something, too, to the well-known compilations of Kinsky and Schering and rather more, perhaps, to Andrea della Corte’s Antologia della storia della musica and to an evaluation of this, its first model, by Alfred Einstein.”
