A-Z of Classical Music: The Great Composers and their Greatest Works Review by Teri Lucas

Hundreds of composers are highlighted in alphabetical order in a compact, but extensive book, along with a superb quality two CD set of the most popular and well-known recordings in classical music. Some lesser-known artists are featured with only a paragraph of history, while others are lengthier.

Noted are several works of each in addition to a "recommended recording" list. Scattered throughout the book are some illustrations of the more well-known composers. Included are a glossary of musical terms and a list of classical music used in various films.

Think of the A-Z of Classical Music as an outline of your musical study. It could be used like a textbook to branch off into several music unit studies, or just to simply introduce your student to the most popular works in classical music. The Naxos website at offers a wide array of affordable products to enhance your study of music.
