Jim Samson has been a Professor of Music at the Universities of Exeter and Bristol and is now Professor of Music at Royal Holloway, University of London. He has published several books on Chopin including The Cambridge Companion to Chopin (1992), as well as books on Szymanowski, late Romantic music, and music of the early twentieth century.


'This is indeed a comprehensive, impressive overview of the music of the period in question. It succeeds in this because Jim Samson has assembled an equally impressive selection of Anglo-American musicological minds to write it with him ... there is in fact nothing gimmicky here, but much to admire ... the book ... on its own terms ... remains a significant contribution to the current literature, of which any publisher should be proud.'
