As can be seen from the above description, Smallman aims at a discussion of broad themes and topics as much as a chronological survey. While his technique of grouping compositions together by topic, within broadly chronological chapters, is usually successful, it results in some odd omissions: surely Vincent d'Indy's monumental Trio in B-flat for Piano, Clarinet and Cello is worth some detailed description, particularly since its composer is mentioned several times in other contexts. The last chapters on the twentieth century seem sketchy and unduly if understandably weighted toward composers from the United Kingdom. Still, any successive authors on this topic will be hard put to surpass the skill with which Smallman has surveyed and ordered this genre of classical music.
