Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of RICHARD BAKER'S MUSIC GUIDE, by Richard Baker and published by David & Charles Ltd in 1979. Signed 'With Best Wishes' by the author on the title page (see picture below).

The book is in near fine condition (clean brown boards and bright gold lettering on spine) with some minor wear to the dust jacket, which is price clipped (light creasing to edges, bumping to corners, fingernail closed tear to the bottom back cover). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

Do you sing opera favourites in the bath or hum snatches of classical tunes as you walk down the street or conduct an imaginary orchestra when you hear Beethoven's Fifth Symphony? Do you keep coming back to your favourite classical records, but find it difficult to move beyond them because of the breadth of choice? If you are one of the many people who 'know what they like' in music but are ready to be stretched, then this book is for you.

Richard Baker, as his admirers know, talks about music in a knowledgeable, relaxed way - and he writes about it just as well. Here he invites you to follow him past some well known musical signposts into a wider world of good music. Working under such broad headings as Opera, Ballet Music, the Concerto and Symphonic Music, he selects a number of compositions which come into the 'top of the pops' category - Handel's LARGO, Elgar's NIMROD, Bach's AIR ON THE G STRING - and then suggests other music in a similar vein, which is less well known but just as attractive. Fascinating snippets of background information and amusing stories of composers and performers give added interest; there are sections devoted to musical humour and to Richard Baker's own favourite pieces, and some helpful hints for choosing records and books and buying concert tickets.

144 pages, including an index and several line drawings.
