Product description

Review

"Dressler has been particularly diligent in digging into the holdings of several archival repositories that document Rawsthorne's radio work. The book will interest large academic libraries that collect comprehensively, or smaller ones with special interests in mid-20th century British concert music. Recommended. Graduate students; faculty."-Choice

?This bio-bibliography provides a much-needed single package of information about Alan Rawsthorne....[t]he timely appearance of this volume proves a worthy tribute for the Rawsthorne centenary. It provides a well-organized single reference source for the composer, the first such work to appear. The bibliography in enhanced by the inclusion of citations to ancillary works that provide a wider context....This book is recommended for academic libraries, and especially for collections with a focus on British or twentieth-century music.?-Music Reference Services Quarterly
