In each "Notes On..." volume, Wilson selects 20 crucial works of a given composer, discusses each masterpiece with insight, wit and verve and tells us why these works are fundamental to understanding the composer. For the experienced listener, there are new insights into Bach's life, work and influences. Conrad Wilson's prose zips along, getting to the heart of the composer and revealing the essence of his music. This book can be read straight through, as a narrative of the composer's life and work; or it can dipped into, to read along with a recording.

Conrad Wilson

'Conrad Wilson's blend of erudition, wit and scrupulous accuracy, laced with racy anecdotal evidence, makes his writing approachable, whichever level of engagement the reader has with "classical" music. These volumes will be invaluable.' -- John Wallace 'I hugely admire Conrad Wilson's writing, and he ably achieves his aim of widening the audience for classical music.' -- Sir Brian McMaster
