Notes and Editorial Reviews

52 Major Events from the History of Music (128 full-colour pages) After devoting the 2006 year to a celebration of Moart for the 250th anniversary of his birth, harmonia mundi present its diary for 2007 following the rhythms of the seasons, as depicted by Arcimboldo, of course, but also by Joseph Haydn and dozens of other composers.
