All of the well-known composers are included here, from Bach and Beethoven to Schubert and Wagner. The author also provides a wealth of information about American composers, and about 20th century composers, including Amy Beach, Leonard Bernstein, William Grant Still, John Adams, Arvo Part, Alfred Schnittke, and John Corigliano.

In addition, Blumenthal offers plenty of suggestions for works by interesting, lesser known composers like Karel Husa, Benjamin Frankel, Aaron Jay Kernis, and Robin Holloway, as well as a special section on contemporary artists which includes suggested CDs by the Kronos Quartet, the Anonymous 4, Yo-Yo Ma, and other performers. The book includes about 130 biographies of composers as well, and every CD reviewed contains a link, or cross-reference, to a related recording.
