Very, very good. Budden's work is incredibly dense, and mostly aimed at musicologists and other experts. He's also, from time to time, rather elitist, sometimes about the most bizarre things (particularly the onstage bands Verdi scored into several of his works). Anyhow, this is a magisterial study, but it's very academic.
