minor ballet composers

Recommended Posts

a friend has just pointed out this book to me from DANCEBOOKS - i was previously unaware of it and it's now 10 yrs. old.

fyi - and i trust all those on BT who appreciate the ballet composers included in the book won't be overly offended by the use of 'minor' in describing them.

if this has already been noted here feel free to delete this post.
