Classical Notes

Tim likes Ted's book

Posted at 2:32 PM on July 24, 2006 by Don Lee

I asked the other day for music appreciation recommendations. Tim Smith in The Baltimore Sun had lots of good things to say about Ted Libbey's new encyclopedia, which I mentioned in a follow-up post on July 20.

I'd still love to hear from others about a book (or recording) that opened a door to classical music in a welcoming, truly useful way.
