A must! This wonderful tool is a very helpful companion for programming and researching repertoire for chamber orchestra. -- Ludovic Morlot, conductor
This extremely comprehensive and user-friendly guide significantly serves the interests of adventurous spirits performing and programming 20th and 21st century repertoire-and of the music itself. Contemporary composers and performers alike owe a debt of gratitude to Maestro Meyer for this extraordinary achievement. -- Paul Moravec, composer
Thorough, intelligent, and incredibly well organized, Chamber Orchestra and Ensemble Repertoire by Dirk Meyer will surely be an indispensable source of information for all musicians-orchestra leaders, chamber musicians, musicologists, and students alike! -- Vadim Gluzman, Concert Violinist
I couldn't think of a more useful and needed book! This catalog is concise and practical. The different classifications, categories, and cross references make it easy to use. It's an invaluable tool for finding specific works in order to program or record them. -- Miguel del Aguila, composer
German conductor Dirk Meyer's book strikes a hopeful chord . . . . This book is a catalog to chamber music after 1900; it has everything the Euterpe in us all longs to see. Patterned after David Daniel's Orchestra Music, Meyer catalogs chamber orchestra and ensemble pieces. The main part of the catalog is arranged alphabetically by composer, and each entry contains information needed to know what instruments and their number are required to play it-flutes, oboes, clarinets, horns, strings, and more-and the duration of each piece. The appendixes prove even more valuable. Arrangement here is first by solo voices, then solo instruments, string orchestras, ensembles by string count, followed by compositions that use no percussion, no harps or pianos, and so on. A twenty-first century repertoire comes next rounded out by a listing by duration. * American Reference Books Annual *
