I ran across a classical music critic named Greg Sandow. An RSS feed had sixteen chapters of his book, "The Future of Classical Music?" He put up the chapters as blog entries at www.artsjournal.com. After each chapter, he invited comments and responses. But, the sixteen chapters was all there was. So, I got his email address and asked about the rest of the book.
I also told him that I had found his web site with links to his complete Wall Street Journal archive of music criticism, and his work for New Music Box. I told him I was going to put everything together in a book, complete with tables of Contents and pagination. I said that I was going to use the compilation as a study guide for buying music. I aid that since it was all going to be one file, it would be searchable.
Greg said that he was delighted, and could he have a copy. Well, of course.
The book is built and paginated in three sections (cover page, Tables of Contents, Text) and printed out at 804 pages (402 sheets 8-1/2" x 11"). I did two files, a Word 97-2003 file, and a .pdf file.
So, as soon as I finish with Alex Ross' "The Rest Is Noise", I can get into Greg's work. I chose Greg because he had a good body of criticism available and because he champions New Music, as do I.
