Summary
The musical equivalent of Roget's International Thesaurus and Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, this unique resource contains more than 10,000 themes from outstanding compositions in the Western tradition. Contents include music from symphonies, concertos, and other orchestral works; chamber music and sonatas; and basic melodies from noteworthy operas, operettas, oratorios, and cantatas as well as lieder, art songs, and other vocal compositions. Themes are printed alphabetically by composer and coordinated with a convenient index that lists the themes by notation. Readers can quickly and easily find the exact music and lyrics of important vocal works, identifying them with just a few bars of the melody. This is an essential reference for all music students, especially those studying music theory, music style, composition, and history
