ISBN 193339367X. This is a fascinating, historical collection written by editors with a much different and closer perspective on the great composers. For example, the article on Debussy is a column (he has perpetrated things likely to offend musician's prejudices unnecessarily). Bruckner rates a column (an inordinate leaning towards the manner of Wagner), while Lewis Spohr (so-called famous composer) gets 7 pages plus a full-page portrait! Includes a helpful index to locate the major articles. Once you start reading, you will not be able to put it down.
