The Classical Music Lover’s Companion to Orchestral Music

A new  – and epic – book is about to appear, written by ex-member of the music department, and before that of the BBC at the OU, Dr Robert Philip. Robert’s Classical Music Lover’s Companion to Orchestral Music, thirteen years in the writing, will be published by Yale University Press on 30 October. It’s a masterful attempt to write about music in a way which is accessible to every lover of music without sacrificing deeper layers of complexity. At nearly 1000 pages, it turns out to be on the very limit of what can be bound in a single volume!
