You know, I haven't read the Bernstein, Rex. And I should.
You've also reminded me that I should go back to Aaron Copland's "What to Listen for in Music," which I was enjoying before I abandoned it (for no good reason) a year or more ago.
From a browsing standpoint, Ted Libbey's new "NPR Listener's Encyclopedia of Classical Music" looks good. But I'm wondering more about friendly how-to guides geared toward novices...in print and in audio, or even video.
