In Child Composers and Their Works: A Historical Survey, Barry
Cooper examines over 100 composers born before 1900 who wrote
substantial musical works before age 16. The book provides a
general overview of the subject, examining the ways and identifying
possible reasons these works have been marginalized in the general
literature. The book also contains an annotated checklist of over
100 notable child composers, presenting a valuable and handy
reference of these creators and their early works. The annotated
checklist presents a chronological listing of child composers born
before 1900 and features a descriptive list of what they wrote,
often including analytical commentary and offering occasional music
examples for illustration. The list also includes a select catalog
of works, suggestions for further reading, and recordings when
available. Complete with a bibliography and an index of composers,
this resource is invaluable to scholars and historians.
