Cirone’s Pocket Dictionary of Foreign Musical Terms

This unique 232 page dictionary contains more than 160 musical examples and over 4 thousand foreign terms in Italian, French and German. Also included are comprehensive sections for percussion and strings. During his 36 year career with the San Francisco Symphony, Cirone encountered thousands of foreign words in parts and scores that inspired him to compile this extensive collection.

Features include:

  • A “slow-to-fast” listing of foreign tempo markings
  • Translated German musical phrases
  • Composers’ instructions for string instruments–with musical examples–in Italian, French and German
  • Percussion instruments and terms in all three languages
  • A valuable resource for performers, composers and conductors
