Delius and his Music
Foreword by SIR MARK ELDER
The book covers the composer’s entire output, including his songs.

The book lists all of his works, with catalogue numbers and publishers, as well as a select bibliography.

Diaries and Selected Writings on Music
Edited by LEWIS FOREMAN & SUSAN FOREMAN
The music critic Felix Aprahamian (1914-2005) was a remarkable self-made man whose enormous influence in musical circles was deeply founded in his practical experience of promoting music in London, notably British and French composers. Being friends with leading French composers and musicians of the day, Aprahamian made his name as music critic on the Sunday Times, where from 1948 to 1989 he was required reading. The collection assembled here from his diaries, articles, reviews and broadcasts sheds new light on his life and work and evokes the almost vanished world of a music criticism both humane and strict, paying tribute to music’s spontaneous and absolute qualities.
