5.0 out of 5 stars invaluable, 29 May 2014
This review is from: A Dictionary of Musical Themes (Hardcover)
This is an invaluable reference book for anyone interested in classical music. If you hear a piece on the radio or TV (and can't get your Shazam app running quickly enough) then this book will help you trace that piece of music. All you do is transpose it into C (major or minor) and use the handy index to point you in the right direction. Occasionally you have to be a little creative, e.g. in the famous Tchaikovsky love theme from "Romeo and Juliet" you do not include the G-natural (F-sharp when transposed to C major), as the dictionary does not consider the appoggiatura part of the theme. I'm not going to debate whether it is or not. However, for the most part the index works exceptionally well, and the compilers have done an excellently diligent job in creating it.
