Most widely held works by Martin Cooper
French music : from the death of Berlioz to the death of Fauré by Martin Cooper( Book )

50 editions published between 1951 and 1984 in 4 languages and held by 1,439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French composers who flourished between 1869 and 1924 include Gounod, Saint-Saens, Bizet, Massenet, Franck, Chabrier, Faure, d'Indy, Debussy, Ravel, Satie, Schmitt, Roussel, Milhaud, and Poulenc. One at least of these was a great composer; several were composers of important and enduring works; and all had individual contributions to make to French music--and indeed to European music as a whole. In this classic study, Martin Cooper provides an entertaining yet sensitive account of a most fruitful half-century of music.--Back cover
