Gibbs (9780195097627)*.
Beginning with Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and ending with Giacomo Puccini, this comprehensive volume features forty-four different composers from seven different countries. In addition to offering a number of landmark works, it also provides important pieces that are rarely anthologized, including Niccolò Piccinni's La buona figliuola, Johann Strauss II's "Blue Danube" Waltz, Bedrich Smetana's The Moldau, and Mikhail Glinka's Kamarinskaya. Designed with students in mind, this unique collection includes introductory essays at the beginning of each piece and an index of names and terms.
A corresponding set of recordings* (3 CDs) contains musical examples from the anthology in high-quality MP3 format (9780199768295). A concise edition of recordings* is also available (3 CDs) (9780199768318).
