Editorial Reviews

Review

"This extraordinary book (in the highly respected `Cambridge Opera Handbooks' series) is the first full-length study of Salome in English since Lawrence Gilman's Strauss' `Salome, (1907)...Very clear and appropriate musical examples, appendixes...extensive notes for each chapter, a bibliography, discography, and index, and several black-and-white plates. Indispensable." J. Rayburn, Choice

Book Description

This first full-length study of Salome in English since Lawrence Gilman's (1907) moves from historical and literary analysis to critical appraisal and includes a synopsis, bibliography and discography.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is not a book for the masses.
It is a book about the opera, not about the Salome from the first century. As such it is very well researched, but the reader is expected to have a more than basic understanding of the theory of music. I don't, and I was struggling with the parts of the book that dealt with symphonic constructions. Nevertheless a very interesting book, but not for the dentist's waiting room.

This is exactly what I had hoped to receive. I also received it in a very short amount of time. What more could anyone ask for? Thank you for a great product and superb service.
