Composers On Music, second edition

Eight Centuries of Writings

Edited by Josiah Fisk and Jeff Nichols
Sam Morgenstern's classic anthology, now thoroughly updated with new selections and commentary reflecting recent music scholarship


"Sam Morgenstern's Composers on Music has been an indispensable item, for work and for pleasure, these past forty years: the beat-up condition of my copy attests to that. But so much has happened since the 1950s and so many interesting new voices have arisen that we have badly needed an update. Now Josiah Fisk has answered our cry with his thorough revision of that anthology, and he has done it splendidly, bringing his impressive intelligence, knowledge, discrimination, and taste to bear on the job."—Michael Steinberg, Program Annotator of the San Francisco Symphony and the New York Philharmonic
