There is an abundance of books concerning 20th century concert music--anlytical, historical, polemical--you name it, someone has written about it.
I have some favorites and I imagine some/most of you do, too. I'd like to compile a list of some of the best of the bunch, mostly as resource, but also in the hopes of coming across something I haven't heard of or that I have meant to read.
I'd like suggestions for the list, in the following three categories:
1) books by composers;
2) books not by composers; and
3) fiction and poetry in which 20th century concert music plays an important role.
Please offer suggestions in the comments, or feel free to email me.
