Each entry contains basic biographical information and a critical analysis of the composer's key works and ideas along with worklists and bibliographic information. Whenever possible, the entries have been checked by the composers themselves. The volume is illustrated with over 200 b&w photographs. A special section found in the appendix traces the connections between important American composers and their students. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
