This invaluable guide for all music lovers covers every significant aspect of Beethoven's output. Distinguished scholars, each of whom is also a skilled and compelling writer, take the reader through each principal genre of composition. Separate sections are devoted to Beethoven as man and artist, the piano music, the chamber music, the orchestral works, the opera "Fidelio" and the vocal music, the manuscripts and their publication, and the book concludes with a fascinating review of the ups and downs of the composer's reputation. The music is discussed in the context of its background, and always so that the reader's understanding and enjoyment will be greatly enhanced
Con che soavità : studies in Italian opera, song, and dance, 1580-1740 by Colin Timms( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Music in 17th and early 18th century Italy was wonderfully rich and varied: in theatrical and secular vocal chamber music alone, we saw the rise of the solo song and cantata, and the birth and growth of opera, all establishing important new structural and expressive paradigms. But this was also a complex time of uncertainty and change, as 'old' and 'new' interacted in subtle and often surprising ways. There is still much to document, explore and explain in terms of composers and repertories and their multi-layered contexts. This collection of essays by European, British and American musicologists seeks to consolidate the recent growth interest in seventeenth century studies. It includes discussions of leading composers (d'India, Monteverdi, Rovetta, Steffani, Albinoni, Vivaldi and Handel), repertories (chamber laments, staged balli and operatic mad-scenes), geographical issues (the arrival of Neapolitan opera in Venice), institutional contexts, and iconography. Inspiration for the book was drawn from the poineering research of Nigel Fortune, to whom the volume is dedicated on his 70th birthday
