Singers of the century by J. B Steane( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and German and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his previous books about singers, John Steane has taken for his subject the art of singing as heard on records (The Grand Tradition) and 'in the flesh' in opera houses and concert halls (Voices, Singers and Critics). Here, in Singers of the Century, he turns to the singers themselves, seeing how their art develops with the opportunities of their professional lives, with chance and design playing their part and all likely to be at the mercy of some quirk of taste or character. Each study is a carefully worked vignette, and the book is illustrated throughout with photographs and memorabilia, many never before published. Singers of the Century will appeal to all those with a love of singing and of music writing at its best

The alchemist by Ben Jonson( Book )

10 editions published in 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Alchemist is a sublimely accomplished satirical farce about dreams of self-refinement: people want to transform themselves into something nobler, richer, more powerful, and more virile just as base metal was touted to be transformed into gold in the alchemical process. First performed in 1610 and set in the same contemporary London time period, the plot revolves around scheming con artists during their master's absence from the house. Face, Subtle and Doll Common dupe a series of "customers" whose desire for aggrandizement leads them to believe in the existence of the fabled "Philosopher's Stone". As their equipment boils over and blows up in the offstage kitchen, so their plot heats up and is exploded by the skeptical Surly and the arrival of their master who quietly pockets their proceeds and marries the rich widow to boot. The play is generally considered Ben Jonson's best comedy, deftly exposing human foible and foolishness to mockery and has continued to thrive in stage productions."--Publisher's description

Elisabeth Schwarzkopf : a career on record by Alan Sanders( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This complete discography of all Elisabeth Schwarzkopf's recordings is illuminatingly enhanced by the singer's own candid comments and reflections. Schwarzkopf is the only recording musician ever to have examined her own legacy of recordings in any detail, and her discussions with John Steane, which form the first part of this book, are fascinating for her legendary self-criticism and delight in her art." "Alan Sanders' discography listing includes worldwide issues of records, cassettes and CDs, and covers Schwarzkopf's entire recording career from 1937 to 1979. This is interspersed with a commentary setting the scene for the recordings and putting them in the context of Schwarzkopf's live performances. The whole pattern of her singing activities is thus clearly conveyed." "The book includes photographs of Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and her colleagues in the recording studios, some never previously published, and comprehensive indexes. It will be an essential and continual source of reference for all her admirers."--Jacket
