2014 Holiday Gift Guide

New York Polyphony
The New York Times

By Anthony Tommasini

You might think it would be easy to come up with gift ideas for classical music lovers, especially people just getting into it. But there is so much out there. I and two of my fellow critics at The New York Times offer some suggestions, mostly items released this past year. There are DVDs of opera productions; tickets; notable books, including a few penetrating new biographies of composers; and CD boxed sets galore.
