This compact and convenient guide to music in London features the sites where music flourishes and where leading musicians have lived or performed in the city - from Handel's house to Berlioz's rooms, from concert halls and recording studios to cathedrals and churches. It provides historical information on opera houses and theatres, recital rooms, conservatories, museums, libraries, galleries, graves, memorials and statues, orchestras, music publishers, and places of musical interest in the greater London area. The book includes biographical accounts of some 125 composers and musicians who inhabited or visited the city. The authors provide interesting musical walks, an historical overview and the most thorough account yet published of musical compositions evoking London. Highlights within the text present information on many topics such as the music Wagner conducted in London in 1855, the organists and choirmasters of the cathedrals, and recording sessions of Gershwin and Stravinsky. With maps, bibliography, web addresses, information on transport and access and an extensive index, this unique compilation is enhanced with many striking illustrations.
