Description: When musicians are asked to play a song they've never played before, they "fake" it. One of the most valuable possessions any professional, amateur or hobbyist musician can have is a fake book that contains the melody line, lyrics and chords for hundreds and hundreds of songs. With access to the melody, lyrics and chords of a song, musicians can improvise their own arrangements.

An unprecedented, amazingly comprehensive reference for all classical music lovers. Imagine having one handy volume that includes everything from Renaissance music to Vivaldi and Mozart to Mendelssohn and Stravinsky. An effort has been made to include as much of the world's most familiar classical music as possible, totalling over 650 titles. That means, for instance, a theme from every movement of every Brandenburg concerto, or a theme from every movement of every Beethoven symphony. This encyclopedia is great to use for playing and performing. It's also a terrific reference for concert-goers, music students, or just plain music lovers. Think of how often we think of a piece, but can't quite conjure it in our heads. With The Classical Fake Book you can find any tune readily (and be humming away in a matter of minutes). Lyrics, in the original language, are included when appropriate. All entries contain a fake book style presentation with melody line and harmony sketched in above it in chord labels. Melody line, lyrics, chords.
