How did I miss this? Review of The Fictional 100 in the IMSLP Journal

9 Aug

I just found this review of The Fictional 100 at the IMSLP Journal, which is the online journal of the International Music Score Library Project/Petrucci Music Library, or IMSLP. Since then I have compiled a fairly comprehensive catalog of music associated with each of the Fictional 100 characters.

Hamlet's theme, Act 1, opera by Ambroise Thomas

Hamlet’s theme from Act 1 of Ambroise Thomas’s 1868 opera

I hope this catalog will appear online soon, and I can report back with full information about it, along with my article discussing what I found when I went looking among the musical  riches themed for the great characters of world literature and legend. In the meantime, I am happy to share (belatedly) this review of The Fictional 100 book.

    Congrats on the glowing review! By the way, I would like to get a copy of your book so I can review it on my blog. It might take me awhile to read it, but the subject matter really sounds so interesting to me. I really wanted to award the giveaway copy you donated for the read-a-thon to myself, but that would have been cheating. HaHa!

      Thanks, Michelle! I’d be delighted. I wanted to send you one anyway too!
