Meeting the existing need for a resource on Spanish violin and viola music, this guide provides the teacher and performer with information on approximately 300 works for violin and viola in solo, with piano, and with orchestra. The annotated entries provide practical information with regard to level of difficulty, musical language, and duration and number of movements. An overview of Spanish music in this century, including a brief examination of violin and viola activity in Spain, places the work in historical context and introduces major names in Spanish musical history.

Short biographical sketches on composers complement the historical information presented about Spanish viola and violin music of the 20th century. Each entry contains a list of the composer's compositions and is annotated with information pertaining to the publisher, musical style, and date of the premiere. Musical scholars with interest in Spanish music and viola and violin music will appreciate this informative volume, complete with appendices and index.

?This work provides a much-needed list of Spanish music for the violin and viola. Although some sources do include Spanish music listings, there has never been a list this complete published. The work is highly recommended for larger public and academic libraries with specialized music collections and for individual violin and viola players who wish to explore Spanish compositions.?-ARBA
