From the history of Mary Had A Little Lamb to the structure and tone of the concerto grosso, Slonimsky explains musical forms, instruments, works and terms from A to Z. He describes the banjo and the belly dance, Menotti opera and Gershwin tunes, histrionic conductors and the inception of the phonograph, all with vast knowledge and likable wit. Slonimsky's writing is both informed and accessible, making his wisdom a professional gem, a novice's bible and good fun for anyone who likes to read.
