A chronology covering 1900-1979 of "facts, thoughts, and ideas about music." Nicolas Slonimsky's introduction states that the author's selection of "quotations from the contemporary press, both in praise of the events and otherwise, provide a panorama of extraordinary effect of an art in flux, an evolution of new forms, an ermegence of new ideas."
A classic in a field the author calls "creative chronology of music." Not only includes a complete chronology from 1900-1991 but also a number of letters and documents not readily available elsewhere. A dictionary of terminology is appended.
