"Tovey's Essays in Musical Analysis are the most famous works of musical criticism in the English language. For acuteness, common sense, clarity, and wit they are probably unequalled, and they make ideal reading for anyone interested in the classical music repertory. Chamber Music contains some of Tovey's most important essays, including those on Bach's 'Goldberg' Variations and Art of Fugue, and on key works by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin, and Brahms. Sir Donald Francis Tovey (1875-1940), first-class pianist, composer, conductor, and writer on music, was best known for his Essays in Musical Analysis. The essays were based on his famous programme notes written mainly for his concerts with the Reid Orchestra in Edinburgh."--Publisher's description
