John Simon on--


This chronologically-arranged volume contains nearly 80 articles on music by cultural critic John Simon that were originally published in Opera News, The New Leader, New Criterion, Playbill and Stagebill during the period 1979-2005. Included are book and music reviews (with CD references) as well as essays on such topics as opera, classical recordings, and Brazilian music. The emphasis generally is on 20th-century classical music written by both well-known and more obscure composers.
