"Of all the composers of Dutch origin, only a handful have achieved world renown, such as early seventeenth century's Jan Pieterzoon Sweelinck and today's Louis Andriessen. Nonetheless, so much more Dutch music is worthy of attention. Now, for the first time ever, four centuries of composition in the Netherlands are documented in an alphabetical reference work." "The Essential Guide to Dutch Music, an initiative of MuziekGroep Nederland, contains a hundred articles written by over forty specialists. Each essay deals with the life and work of an individual composer and is followed by a list of works as well as a discography. Short bibliographies make suggestions for more specialized reading." "This book is an indispensable and useful source of information for anyone who wants to know more about the music of the Netherlands."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
