I'm not sure why the book is organized as it i. t can be very time consuming to find a definition. It is also not specific to percussion, as I'd hoped, "A Practical Guide To Percussion Terminology" by Russ Girsberger is a much more helpful guide for percussionists and should be the premier dictionary for percussionists.

I teach and perform classical music. I also perform a lot of operas with a local professional group. Great tool for looking up esoteric and rare words in the parts. I have Groves, Harvard, and several other small music dictionaries. This one has several words not found in the others. As a conductor, it also has a great list of percussion words in different languages. Still find myself needed to go online to search rare spellings sometimes, but a great help for a lot of words.

As a freelance musician, I work with many different people, from students to professionals, and Cirone's Pocket Dictionary of Foreign Musical Terms has made it's permanent home in the drawer beside my piano. It's compact size has made it very convenient to keep on hand without getting in the way, and equally easy to throw in my bag when heading out to a rehearsal. It has become my first go-to resource when looking up a foreign musical term, either in instrumental, vocal, or choral music. The book is geared towards the orchestral music field, but I have found it to be incredibly valuable when working with singers also. The languages include Italian, French and German, with each language included under the categories of: Tempo Indications, Musical Directives, Percussion Instruments and Terms, and String Terms and Directives. The percussion section gives further explanation of unfamiliar instruments, and the string section shows musical examples of the definition. Of the thousands of times I've referred to this pocket dictionary, I can count only 2-3 times when something I was looking up required further clarification from another source. Overall, I have been exceptionally pleased with this fantastic resource...well worth the price for all the clarification it provides...and portable! You won't regret the purchase of this book.

This dictionary is divided into five difference subject areas--tempo indications, musical directives, musical phrases, percussion instruments and terms, and string terms and directives. Within each, except for musical phrases, there are subheadings: Italian, French and German. Musical phrases are in German only. I much prefer one alpha listing---much faster and easier to use. Look into The Pocket Manual of Musical Terms, Edited by Theodore Baker. Much superior.

I have bought a number of musical dictionaries over the years -- and all of them, for one reason or another, have proved themselves to be either inaccurate, overly scholarly, irrelevant or impractical to use. Inevitably, they wound up little-used in my garage, and finally as donations to my public library. The problem with these dictionaries was always that they were written by linguists and music history professors with little or no experience in the practical side of professional music-making.

Finally, Anthony Cirone has jumped in to fill the void. He has produced a small dictionary of foreign musical terms that is destined to be stuffed into the briefcases of virtually every orchestral musician and opera singer, together with the music they are playing. With decades of professional experience as a principal percussionist with the San Francisco Symphony, and a long teaching career at the IU School of Music in Bloomington and San Jose State in California, Cirone has gone through the real repertoire of well-known orchestral and operatic works to come up with USEFUL musical terms in French, Italian and German -- coupled with ACCURATE English translations. For many musical directions, he has included typset examples from famous scores, showing the music that illustrates the term.

So musicians, no longer do you have to sit in rehersals with dumb grins on your faces when the German guest conductor says: "Sehr getragen und gesangvoll."

Violinists, now you will know what to do with that four-note chord in Aaron Copland's Piano Concerto marked "arraché"; or the staccato passage that Alban Berg marked "Bogenspitze."

Tenors: did you ever wonder how to sing an aria marked "lusingando"?

Percussionists: do you know what instrument to play when you encounter "switch to xocalho"? Or how about the "planchette ronflante" (also known as the "rhombe")?

Who knew that the Jews Harp is also called the rebube and the guimbarde. (The Jews Harp is not a classical instrument, you say? Then you have not played Charles Ives' "Washington's Birthday" or any of the seven Concerti for Jews Harp and Orchestra by Johann Albrechtsberger, one of Beethoven's teachers.

Conductors: Here is good advice: "Nie eilen."

And here is one for Anthony Cirone: bravissimo!

Pocket Dictionary of Foreign Musical Terms by Anthony J. Cirone is an excellent book for all musicians: composers, conductors, musicologists and performers. Amazingly, over 4000 musical terms, including tempo indications and musical directives, in Italian, French and German are included in this small book which you can carry in your pocket conveniently. What I like the most is the extra feature of Cirone's keen professional perspective on percussion instruments and terms. Cirone has been a principal percussionist with the San Francisco Symphony for 36 years. He has performed under many distinguished conductors and composers including Leonard Bernstein, Seiji Ozawa, Herbert Blomstedt, Eugene Ormandy, Kurt Mazur, James Levine, Michael Tilson Thomas, Aaron Copland and Igor Stravinsky. Furthermore, Cirone has taught many years in universities including as Chair of the Percussion Department at Indiana University in Bloomington. You will rarely, if at all, find any other small book that has detailed info on percussion instruments and terms in three foreign languages. This book should have been published 50 years ago! This MUST be required for all music schools and conservatories.
