“The Dictionary of Composers contains biographies of nearly 200 composers, past and present, by specialists in their subjects.  There are lengthy entries on such major figures as Mozart, Beethoven, and Verdi, and shorter, but equally fascinating pieces on lesser-known composers.  Essentially this not a technical work on music, but a useful, informal reference book of essays in which the major events of a composer’s life are related to his music.”
