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

21 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and German and held by 494 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 )

8 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the most thoroughly investigated edition of Volpone to date, based on a wider collation of the 1607 quarto and 1616 folio versions than was previously possible. It calls into question several accepted textual conclusions." "The introduction sets Volpone in the context of Jonson's career at the time of writing and introduces new material on its relation to the Reynard beast epic and the commedia dell'arte. Ambiguities in the play are discussed with reference to two Renaissance perversions of the myth of the Golden Age. The modernised text is accompanied by full commentary, notes and illustrations. The appendices include a discussion by John Cutts of the original music, passages translated from the original sources and analogues, and a full record of the play's modern stage history, its many adaptations, and its transformations into opera, musical comedy, film and television."--Jacket

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

12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 260 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
