This musical alphabet of the first half of the nineteenth century, translated and published in Russia by D. Dmitrievsky, was written by Director of Milan Riyal Conservatory and composer B. Azioli (1826). Containing a large volume of theoretical information, the book is logically structured. The wordings used by the author are exact and succinct. The translated version of Azioli’s “Musical Grammar” is probably the best edition of that kind.
Written by B. Azioli, Director of Milan Royal Conservatory and composer; translated and published by D. Dmitrievsky.
