Dear all, I'm glad to announce that the first volume of Ad Parnassum
Studies series is now available (www.adparnassum.org)

   "Hector Berlioz. Miscellaneous Studies"
   Introduction by Julian Rushton
   edited by Fulvia Morabito and Michela Niccolai

   This volume inaugurates the series of Studies of the twice-yearly journal
   Ad Parnassum.  A Journal of 18th and 19th-Century Instrumental Music.
   These publications are devoted to individual composers who have made a
   significant impact in the field of instrumental music.  In this way they
   remain securely within the journal's area of interest, though without
   actually imposing strict limits on the specific themes treated, given
   that the entire output of the composers concerned may be taken into
   account, not just the instrumental music.  As in the case of Hector
   Berlioz (Cote-St.  Andre, 1803 - Paris, 1869), the composer chosen for
   the present volume.  This collection of miscellaneous studies ranges
   widely, therefore, from his instrumental production to the operas, also
   taking in his contributions to music criticism and the theoretical
   literature.
