Product description

Published by Princeton University Press. First paperback printing, 2000. (xxxii), 561pp including bibliographical references and index. Well illustrated. Signs of handling, but the text is clean and tight, no marks or inscriptions.


The world-renowned musicologist Richard Taruskin has devoted much of his career to helping listeners appreciate Russian and Soviet music in new and sometimes controversial ways.
