This book is a very conclusive study tool for the Listening Paper and the analyses of set works. It falls down badly, however, with the information for the '4 Decades of Jazz and Blues' topic. The AQA specification for this is very open to interpretation, which in one sense is excellent because it would appear there is no particular set approach to use, it being up to the teacher in conjunction with the pupils to decide the best path. The study guide provides no real in depth information on this topic, just an overview. Very disappointing when I look at the amount of detail given in the OCR Rhinegold guide for the jazz topic at AS level(!).

An excellent resource - even better than his previous guides for the AQA spec. The Mahler analysis is clear and digestible. I am very happy to recommend this book to teachers or students preparing for AQA A2.

This book has proven to be a vital reliable resourse for A2 music students. It includes all major works of study with a depth of information tailored to the specification.
A very usful resource!
