Many reference books on classical music try to cater either to the total newbie or to the well-seasoned expert. And virtually none let you actually hear the music they're describing in the book. But now Ted Libbey's book "The NPR Listener's Encyclopedia of Classical Music" breaks those barriers. It's expository, for newbies. Detailed, for experienced connoisseurs. And there's a website for the book so you can hear over 500 of the pieces described in the book.
