The A-Z of Classical Music Expanded 3rd Edition Now Available

November 1, 2009

The A–Z of Classical Music 3rd edition has been expanded to include even more composers and 150 bonus music tracks. The 930-page illustrated book details the lives of hundreds of composers, from Aaltoila to Zwilich, via Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and others. Like the range of Naxos recordings itself, this set highlights the extraordinary breadth of classical music and its masters across the centuries; it is a rich and inspiring resource for everyone.


The CDs give a snapshot of the greatest composers; the Bonus Area enables you to sample music by 150 others online. Ranging from Albéniz to Zwilich, they form a musically colourful variety of famous and less familiar names.
