Books to read
on: May 06, 2003, 04:19:19 AM
Hi guys,

Can anyone of you recommend me some good reference books to read about certain composers or pieces.

I am learning these pieces now: Bach WTC Bk 1 D Minor, Beethoven Op 10 no 1, Chopin Ballade no 3 n Chopin Nocturne op 62 no 2, and Prokofiev Vision Fugitives no 1-5.

I would like books that explore these pieces in depth and if possible give a good historical background on the pieces n the composer himself.

Cheers
