Aimed at amateur players, for whom much of the chamber repertoire was written, this guide covers music by 50 significant composers, from the 17th century (Purcell and Corelli) to the 20th (including Britten and Shostakovich). Information is provided on each work’s instrumentation, duration and technical difficulty, together with comments on special points of interest. Pieces particularly suitable for inexperienced players are identified; an appendix suggests less familiar composers whose music will also be of interest. Slightly off-mint.
