Summary
  • "Generally speaking, the English language is not the language of choice for most composers, and you will find Adagio rather than Slow at the top of a piece of music and decrescendo rather than gradually softer on the printed page. Although this may change in the future, for the present it is vital for musicians to understand instructive terminology in the 3 languages in which they are most commonly found."--BOOK JACKET. "Created after years of compiling, organizing, and editing by David Boccagna, a practicing musician for over thirty years, this compendium was born out of a of a practical need for clarity and precision in terminology. Performers, teachers, students, and amateur music lovers will find it easy to use, easy to handle, and of infinite value in the interpretation and appreciation of music of every style and description."--BOOK JACKET.
