Summary
"Nicolas Slonimsky's Lexicon of Musical Invective is an anthology of critical assaults on well-known composers and their works. Here the reader will find biased, unfair, ill-tempered, and singularly unprophetic judgments by musicians and reviewers. Also included is the author's "Invecticon." an index to the nasty words and phrases found in the book. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
