MUSIC

This arm of APS Books covers rock music in which I have a fanatical interest and classical music thanks to the expertise of my friend Keith Horsfall. We publish the wonderfully obscene ‘Troggs Black Tape’ and a series of essential discographies for collectors. We also publish notes for classical music orchestral repertoire from ALBINONI to WEBER. each sold with a licence to reproduce the text to accompany a concert or classical music event. So if you’re preparing a concert programme and wish to save yourself the effort of writing your own synopsis of the music then for 99p or $1.29 see the links at the foot of this page.
