It is a little over eight years since this compact but comprehensive little work first appeared. Much has happened during that period: new composers have emerged in Europe and America, those already represented in the first edition who are still alive have produced many new works, a number of eminent performers have become eligible for inclusion through their death, new organizations and institutions have been formed and old ones have changed their personnel, and even some new technical subjects have called for discussion. What is more, mistakes, errors and misprints have been noted by the editor and by numerous users of this Dictionary who have been kind enough to communicate them, so that this new edition has had the benefit of far-reaching corrections as well of sufficient additions to swell its size considerably 1946.Keywords: This Dictionary Europe And America Eminent Performers Technical Subjects New Edition Still Alive Composers Swell Inclusion Additions Benefit
