Now in its third edition, Latin American Classical Composers: A Biographical Dictionary provides a singular English-language resource for biographical information on hundreds of composers from Central and South America and the Hispanic Caribbean. Painstakingly gathered from a wide variety of sources, the information updates and expands previous editions and fills in the gaps left by the other major English-language music dictionaries and encyclopedias. Entries provide biographical data comprising full names, birth and death dates and locations, background, education, and training, as well as selective works lists more than 2,300 composers. An index of composers by country and women composers of Latin America complement the volume. An essential part of any music library, Latin American Classical Composers is an invaluable reference for librarians, musicologists, ethnomusicologists, researchers, and music students.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This third edition of a book first published some 20 years ago includes 2,330 entries, substantially more than did its predecessors. New to this edition is a list of some 280 women composers. Of the 20 Latin American countries represented, the top five (Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, and Cuba, in that order) garner more than two-thirds of the entries. . . .[T]he third of edition of this hefty reference work will prove useful for those looking for basic information on the many Latin Americans who have composed for venues other than the pop/rock arena. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty; general readers. * CHOICE *
