For novices and experts alike, the fully updated fifth edition features contemporary composer Helmut Lachenmann and Widor, the 19th century organ composer of 'Toccata' wedding fame, as well as dozens more works added for existing composers. You'll find an new 'Top 10's' section with accessible introductory listings including the Top 10 operas and the Top 10 symphonies plus new essay boxes on topics such as qBaroque - a style or a period?q and qThe clarinet comes of ageq. The Rough Guide to Classical Music features fresh and incisive reviews of hundreds of CDs, selecting the very best of the latest recordings and reissues as well as more than 150 illustrations of composers and performers, including a rare archive of photos.This is the place to begin any Elgar collection. CHAMBERMUSIC Elgar composed a lot of chamber music in his youth, notably the series of so-called a€œ shed musica€ he wrote for himself and his young wind-playing friends to play in his garden.
