Highly recommended. General and academic libraries. CHOICE One of the longest-lived music magazines in American history, The Etude printed over 10,000 musical compositions over the course of its publishing history (1883-1957). Presenting an eclectic range of styles and levels of difficulty, the editors placed major composers of Western art music side by side with popular composers. This reference volume contains a chronological listing of the musical contents of each issue of The Etude. These entries are then indexed by composer, title, text author (if applicable), and instrumentation. Reference and Research Book News Bomberger...has provided an invaluable snapshot of musical taste during seventy-five years of American history as well as the meticulous spadework of providing access to both obscure works and composers... This volume will be invaluable to music libraries... -- vol. 62 Notes: The Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, December 2005 The utility of this index is not to be underestimated, for a wealth of information on America's musical culture is truly reflected in its pages...highly recommended...
