Organized to follow the development of the Baroque harpsichord concerto, the volume is divided into four parts: the Baroque era (J.S. Bach to Mozart), the Classical era (Mozart to Beethoven), the Romantic era (post-Beethoven to Brahms), and the 20th century (post-Brahms to the present). Each part begins with an examination of the works composed in Germany, followed by Italy, then European countries east of the north-south line through Germany and Italy, and finally countries west of that line. Includes a discography, bibliography, 46 tables of additional composers listed by country, and a composer index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
