CRITIC REVIEW:

“Like most collectors, I wish to know something of every significant artist who entered my collection. Thus, a work like this one with the vast amount of research its compilation has entailed is particularly welcome….the book covers and provides details of opera houses, conservatories, theatres and a surprising lineup of native composers….The volume provides birth and death dates for most of its subjects…plus a degree of personal information such as family background. One can only admire the immense amount of time-consuming research the book must have required on the part of the author….Competitively-priced, the book, which is available only as softbound, is particularly welcome and provides an indispensable reference source.”

- Michael F. Bott, THE RECORD COLLECTOR, 2011
