Indispensable." J. Rayburn, Choice

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.
