This is an excellent set of encyclopedias, a valuable, "must-have" collection for any university library. Spanish and Hispanic composers, performers, musicologists, genres, forms, etc., are discussed. This work is the Spanish counterpart to the Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. Written in Spanish, each entry is well researched with images of the composers and a complete list of works and resources. If you want to understand who Sebastián de Iradier was and his importance to Bizet's Carmen, this is your source. Which Spanish composer brought Italian opera to NYC? Manuel García and his many contributions are discussed as well as his superstar children.
The musicologists contributing to this massive endeavor are to be commended.
