Editorial Reviews

Review

?I know of no other book that could be called a predecessor or a competitor to this one, and I doubt that one will appear anytime soon. Claude Arnold has given us a much-needed reference, and he has done his work very well indeed.?-The New Amberola Graphic

Book Description

Documents for the first time the expansion of repertoire from the marches and potpourris of the 1890s to the symphonic recordings of the late acoustical period.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jerome F. Weber on April 3, 1998
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most detailed general discographies ever published. The author lists orchestral music recorded before 1926 by composer, establishing the authoritative title of the work, the precise identification of the performers, the recording date, issue date, original 78rpm issue numbers, and all LP and CD reissues (the last in footnotes). This is so much more than copying catalogue data. The information is authentic, the result of many years of research, not only by the author, but in consultation with a broad range of experts who have assisted. The format is readible. The author has left no stone unturned.
