Catching up to Thousand Oaks, California, where their library chose The Soloist for last year’s One City, One Book celebration. Here’s a page where they list the descriptions I wrote up for the 46 musical works Steve Lopez mentions in the book, when the Free Library of Philadelphia chose The Soloist for its 2009 One Book, One Philadelphia award.

California asked, and Philadelphia was happy to say yes, feel free to use these if you like. Here’s my post on it from last year. I also link to YouTube examples for the works; there’s everything from Bach to Stevie Wonder here.
