5.0 out of 5 stars Behind Bars-Review, 20 May 2012
'Behind Bars' is an exhaustive and in-depth guide to the principles of music notation and valuable not only to the composer and manuscript editor but also to the performer wishing to clarify points of interpretation and anomalies either in an individual solo part or printed score. The layout is systematic and rigorous with many useful examples from a wide range of repertoires, embracing a wealth of knowledge concerning current thinking on instrumentation and orchestration. Elaine has many years of experience as one of the senior editors at Faber and this is amply demonstrated in what is surely an important reference tool and music manual for the 21st Century. A worthwhile buy!
