Summary "Building on the strengths of the first edition, the second edition of Latin American Classical Composers: A Biographical Dictionary presents expanded and updated coverage of its topic with an aim to be comprehensive. The authors have conducted exhaustive research to fill in gaps and correct minor errors in the first edition, adding young composers and documenting deaths since 1996, when the first edition appeared. Hundreds of composers are represented in this volume, which presents biographical data, including dates of birth and death, personal information about composers background and training, and a selective listing of each composer's works. Sources for further study are noted within each entry. An index of composers by country rounds out this work."--Jacket
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 642-643)
