Nicolas Slonimsky

Nicolas Slonimsky (1894-1995) was a well-known and renowned music critic. Born in the city of Saint. In his 101 years, he taught and coached music, directed the premieres of several twentieth-century masterpieces, produced works for piano and voice, and oversaw the 5th-8th editions of the renowned Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians. He was born in Petersburg, Russia, in 1894. Slonimsky began living in the United States in 1926. He began writing challenging articles about contemporary music and musicians soon after his arrival, many of whom were personal acquaintances.

He accumulated a big file of reviews, essays, and even manuscripts for books that were never published while working as a freelance author. In four volumes, this compilation puts together the best of this material.
