Who's Who Classical Music 2010

This premier online classical music source describes the International Who's Who in Classical Music 2010 as 'a useful, comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date reference source for a wide variety of people'.

''More than 8,000 musicians are included in this latest (2010) edition. Apparently those included are given the opportunity to amend and add to their entries in the interests of accuracy and currency. Routledge's editorial department is also engaged in ensuring accuracy and last minute updates. No book, of course, can ever keep up with developments in the way that online sites can. But there is no single source online that's as comprehensive as International Who's Who in Classical Music 2010, 26th Edition. Libraries, music departments in colleges and universities as well as other publishers, music venues and recording companies, agencies and the like would all benefit from access to the publication.

The schematic is logical and the references easy to follow. There is no bias even towards the English-speaking world: opera companies in Vietnam (one in Hanoi) and orchestras (the Hanoi Philharmonic and Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra), for example, are listed – with telephone and fax numbers, email addresses and websites. Entries, then, tend towards the factual, rather than the evaluative. But this, too, is as it should be. It's a work of reference.

If your organization needs at its staff's fingertips an authoritative and comprehensive survey of the achievements and some factual information of many of the most prominent figures in music, music administration and performance, then International Who's Who in Classical Music 2010, 26th Edition can be safely recommended.''
