Theodore Baker’s Biographical Dictionary of Musicians is a classic work of musical biography. It presents 2400 entries of hundreds of composers, conductors, singers, and instrumental virtuosos, as well as important scholars, critics, teachers, librettists, patrons, and impresarios from every country and every period of music. Brief but substantial, it can by right be considered an encyclopedia of a world of music, due to its extensive, well-detailed review of classical and modern music luminaries.
