Michael Steinberg ... A Listener's (And Composer's) Guide

Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, eighteen of Mozart's piano concertos, all the concertos of Beethoven and Brahms, and major symphonic and choral works by Bach, Handel, Haydn, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Berlioz, Schumann, Liszt, Bruch, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Bruckner, Verdi, Mahler, Grieg, Elgar, Sibelius, Strauss, Rachmaninoff, Charles Ives, Arnold Schoenberg, Bela Bartok, Igor Stravinsky, Vaughan Williams, Alban Berg, Paul Hindemith, Sergei Prokofiev, Aaron Copland, Elliott Carter, Charles Wuorinen, John Adams, and other contemporary classical masters.

What I know much better -- if still imperfectly -- because of Michael Steinberg, musicologist and writer.
