Richard Strauss (Master Musician)
Richard Strauss (Master Musician)
by Michael Kennedy
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Concise and enthusiastic life-and-works-of review, 18 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent out-of-print concise and enthusiastic life-and-works-of review of Richard Strauss in the highly regarded Master Musicians series. The volume is in "very good" condition although the paper is yellowing with age, a common trait in cheap paperbacks of a certain vintage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing observations for canophiles, 18 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Chuckles and outright laughs. As a dog-owner who has come to love his mutt I can recognise many pertinent observations in this collection. I collected all three titles in the series (two from Amazon after picking up one first at Asda, where a guffaw startled a customer.

A present for my wife who likes the Celtic style pendant but found the chain too small - the pendant has been attached to a longer one.

My wife loves it. Too precious to put in the dishwasher or risk chipping.


The Penguin Concise Guide to Opera
The Penguin Concise Guide to Opera
by Amanda Holden
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent compact (not comprehensive) guide, 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is packed with information on nearly all major opera composers and many of their operas - it is not comprehensive, you need the full Penguin Opera Guide for that. I have used it frequently. The composer bios are informative, the synopses very helpful, and the overviews of each opera include perceptive comments on their musical merits written with genuine insight and enthusiasm.


Poetry Please: The Seasons
Poetry Please: The Seasons
by Various Poets
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.24

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable anthology with some favourites and less well known poems, 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an enjoyable anthology which includes some favourites and less well known poems. The sequence within the seasons is not always chronological for some reason - slightly annoying. In hardback this fairly slim volume is nice to handle but a tad over-priced unless purchased here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for xenophiles, 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good for dipping into. The entries vary in focus but they are all witty and informative. For a language buff and xenoPHILE the book is excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Witty, and informative in a limited way, 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite witty, and informative in a limited way. Can anyone really want to just bluff their way, and not immerse themself? I enjoyed it and read it from cover to cover in no time. Maybe keep in the loo.
